Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training

Athletic trainers help prevent, care and rehabilitate musculoskeletal conditions in people of all ages from children to professional athletes. Starting the sophomore year onward, the nationally accredited (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education [CAATE]) Athletic Training Program prepares students for the Board of Certification exam, the gateway to a successful career as an athletic trainer. In addition, students gain valuable hands-on experience in our facilities on and off campus through practicums with FHSU Athletics, area high schools and the Hays Medical community. If you pursue a degree in Athletic Training, you will develop competencies (knowledge and skills) in the five domains of athletic training defined by the Board of Certification (BOC) Role Delineation Study and upon graduation, you will be eligible for certification by the BOC and licensure by the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts.

Unlike many degree programs, students must apply to the Athletic Training Program and meet certain admission requirements. Applications are only accepted between January 1st and March 1st for admission the following August. To find out more specific information about the program, click on one of the links below:
