About the Athletic Training Program

As of September 1, 2016 Carroll University will no longer be accepting freshman direct admit students into its Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training program. The institution is in the process of developing an entry-level Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program and subsequently will seek Higher Learning Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) approval. Current CU students and transfer students with prior earned college credits can apply and will be evaluated on an individual basis as they may still qualify for the Bachelor of Science degree.


The Athletic Training Education Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.

Students are educated to work with active populations in a variety of settings, including secondary schools, colleges, professional sports programs, sports medicine clinics, and industrial settings.

The program utilizes a variety of individuals, including academic and clinical athletic trainers, basic behavioral and social scientists, other allied health care professionals, athletes and coaches, and the community.

The athletic training program is part of Health and Human Movement Sciences, a collaborative group of health science majors with similar missions and goals.

Clinical Education Experiences/Capstones/Internships

Athletic training students participate in a variety of health care practicum rotations, including attending orthopedic surgery, area college and high school athletic training rooms, area sports medicine clinics, area industrial medicine clinics, as well as the opportunity to meet with area professional sports athletic trainers.

A capstone internship takes place the final semester of the senior year and offers a culminating learning experience that helps prepare the student to become an entry-level athletic trainer.
