Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training

The Athletic Training (AT) Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).  The program has been on Probation as of February 19, 2016 by the CAATE. (6850 Austin Center Blvd., Ste 100, Austin, TX 78737-3184; 844-462-2283).  Athletic Trainers are the front-line professionals dealing specifically with athletes and athletic injuries.  The program consists of various academic and clinical education experiences.  Not only will athletic training students be exposed to numerous academic challenges but, as a part of the clinical education program, they will also be involved in the daily delivery of athletic healthcare to the intercollegiate athletes at Cumberland University as well as athletes and individuals in additional settings.

This hands-on clinical education experience will better enable the students to complete clinical education competencies and give them the opportunity to expand the concepts learned in the classroom.  These experiences include practice and game coverage, injury evaluation and treatment, implementing injury prevention techniques, as well as designing and implementing long-term rehabilitation and conditioning programs.

UPDATE: We are no longer accepting students into the undergraduate Athletic Training Program. We are in the process of applying for transition to a Master of Science in Athletic Training.
