The Department of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation has created a B.S. in Exercise Science with a Pre-Athletic Training Option. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 17% increase in projected employment growth for Athletic Trainers from 2021-2031, faster than the average for all occupations. The Exercise Science curriculum prepares students in many content areas that are necessary for successful admission into a Master’s in Athletic Training program. With the addition of a Pre-Athletic Training Option to the Exercise Science major, courses will be outlined for students to enhance the likelihood of successful admission.
