Program Notes:

  • Athletic Training is one option for Pre-Physical Therapy curricula. This major will afford the student the opportunity to hold a dual credential (Physical Therapist/Athletic Trainer) at the completion of their advanced degree program in PT. This dual credential provides students the opportunity to seek employment in a variety of health care venues as a dual credentialed professional.
