Since our Athletic Training program is transitioning to a graduate level degree, we are not accepting new applicants. The information on this page only applies to current students who are in the clinical portion of the academic program. We anticipate a start date for Master's degree of May 2020.

The program was established in 2001 to meet the guidelines and standards established by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education, the National Athletic Trainers Association Education Council, and the Texas Advisory Board of Athletic Training.

In cooperation with physicians and other health care professionals, the athletic trainer functions as a member of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, professional sports programs, sports medicine clinics and other athletic health care settings.
