This minor provides students with exposure to the knowledge and skills needed to become an athletic trainer: however, it does not qualify students to sit for board certification. Students interested in becoming NATA certified should contact the National Athletic Trainer’s Association for more information. This minor is designed primarily for those individuals who major in disciplines such as nutrition, biology, physical and health education, and public health. This minor may also be of interest for students in pre-professional programs including pre-medicine, pre-chiropractic, pre-occupational therapy, and pre-physical therapy. Courses in this minor may also be used to satisfy requirements in other major programs.
