Degree Information

The Health, Wellness, and Exercise Science Department offers a major in Athletic Health Care to prepare students for a career in sports medicine. Athletic Health Care deals with Physical Fitness, treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise.  Students who select this major will have an opportunity to engage in clinical practicums wherein they work very closely with board certified athletic trainers who serve as preceptors while assisting with intercollegiate athletics in a natural learning environment. 

Students must be formally accepted into the Athletic Health Care (AHC) major.  This application typically happens near the end of their freshmen or sophomore years of study.  Applications and other supporting documents are available from the director of the Athletic Health Care major or Department Chair.
