Athletic Training

Athletic Training

Athletic trainers are certified health care professionals who specialize in the prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic-related illnesses and injuries. To become an athletic trainer, you must:

  • have a degree in Athletic Training and
  • pass the National Athletic Training Examination

Although Missouri Southern State University does not offer a degree in Athletic Training, we offer a number of kinesiology courses for students who desire to pursue athletic training at the graduate school level.
