Athletic Training Major General Information
Truman State University’s Athletic Training Education Program's mission is, via a liberal arts education, to develop critical thinking athletic training professionals that are capable of meeting the diverse demands of the field. The Athletic Training major is designed to prepare students to successfully pass the BOC Certification exam and enter the field of athletic training as a certified athletic trainer. Students participate in a curriculum that combines classroom, laboratory and a progressive clinical education experience, designed for the students to apply information learned in the classroom and labs to hands on situations involving real patients and athletes.
The Athletic Training major consists of Liberal Studies Program (LSP) requirements, Bachelor of Science (B.S.) requirements, and major requirements. The total minimum number of credit hours required for a B.S. Athletic Training degree is 124; however the actual number of credits completed will depend on the LSP courses chosen.
