University Majors

San Diego State University
Athletic Training B.S. in Applied Arts and Sciences

The athletic training major is a CAATE accredited undergraduate major. The program leads students to a career in athletic training and eligibility to sit for the Board of Certification athletic training examination. Certified athletic trainers are responsible for the prevention, management, and rehabilitation of athletic and physically active injuries. They work in such diverse areas as high schools, community colleges, universities, sports medicine clinics, corporate/industrial settings; and professional athletics. The athletic training program is comprised of two components of study, a preprofessional program and a professional program. The professional program requires application to the program and includes a clinical education component. The clinical education component is an intensive, hands-on service learning program that provides students with the opportunity to apply psychomotor skills in a real athletic environment under the direct supervision of a certified athletic trainer. Students are given the opportunity to practice what they learn in a variety of clinical education settings included, but not limited to, the Department of Athletics at San Diego State University.
