Athletic Training and Rehabilitation Sciences
The athletic training and rehabilitation sciences program prepares students for a career as an allied-health professional, as well as entry into a professional degree program. Students in this program will study a broad spectrum of foundational concepts to develop the skills needed to manage the health care needs of physically active individuals at all levels and ages. This degree provides a large number of unrestricted electives for students interested in completing course work that will enhance their undergraduate academic experience, such as a variety of pre-health tracks (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, etc.) or academic minors, certificates and secondary majors.
Additionally, the athletic training and rehabilitation sciences degree will support the preparation for students and their application to the accredited professional Master of Science in Athletic Training program at Kansas State University.
Athletic trainers work in cooperation with physicians as an integral member of the health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, professional sports, sports medicine clinics, performing arts, military, industrial and other healthcare settings.
