Athletic Training Minor

Students interested in athletic training should pursue a BS in Kinesiology & Sports Studies (human performance concentration), with an athletic training (AT) minor.  The AT minor allows students to complete the required courses to qualify for the Texas Licensure exam to become a Licensed Athletic Trainer within the state of Texas. This also requires completing 1800 apprenticeship hours under the supervision of an athletic trainer, which must be completed over a minimum of five fall and/or spring semesters.  Students who want to become a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) will need to pursue a master's degree in a CAATE accredited Athletic Training program upon completion of their bachelor's degree.  Our program will help students complete pre-requisites and gain experience for an accredited master’s program.  Please contact Sarah Mitchell for more details.
