The Athletic Training major prepares students to sit for the national Board of Certification examination. Approximately two-thirds of the graduates in this major continue on to get their master's degree and then employment in athletic training, working at colleges, high schools, or clinics. They may pursue a Ph.D. in a related academic discipline. The other one-third generally pursue degrees in other allied health fields such as medicine (D.O., M.D.), physician assistant and physical therapy.
The Exercise Science major has been developed to prepare students for careers in health and wellness. Our majors will be prepared to apply to graduate programs in exercise science, physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician assistant. Others may choose to sit for the American College of Sports Medicine certifications in personal training or health fitness specialist. Additionally, students will be prepared to enter into careers in cardiac rehabilitation.
