Curriculum | Athletic Training

Beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year the curriculum will consist of 6 consecutive semesters.  The first summer session begins June 2019. 

Additional Certifications 

Our program is committed to supporting professional growth and learning and enabling students to be competitive candidates when seeking employment.  During their time in the program, students will have the opportunity to obtain certifications beyond what is offered in the curriculum.  Courses we have hosted include HawkGrips (IASTM), Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) and Myofascial Decompression (cup therapy).  Our goal is to offer 1 additional certification course each semester with the flexibility to adjust offerings based on professional relevance and student interest. 

Research Requirement

As a part of our graduation requirements, each student is required to be a part of the planning, development, implementation, and completion of an original research project.  This project can be the result of a group effort with the classmates in your cohort and will be guided by an existing program faculty member.  You will be enrolled in a 2-credit research course during each semester of your matriculation.
