What You Can Do with a Master's Degree in Injury and Sport Biomechanics with an Athletic Training Track?
This specialization within Barry's graduate program in Movement Science combines both theory and practice that will prepare you for a leadership position as an allied health practitioner in athletic training. Your career options include: college/university athletic training administration, clinical administration, athletic training curriculum clinical education, and clinical research in any athletic training setting.
A master's degree in athletic training will prepare you to assume the rank of instructor in university-level academic programs, which is something you cannot do with a bachelor's degree in athletic training alone. As a graduate of this program you will be able to teach didactic and clinical courses in CAATE-accredited (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education) athletic training education programs. You will also be prepared for pre-doctoral research by choosing the thesis option.
The program covers advanced topics, opening up new career possibilities. It will build upon the fundamentals of athletic training that you mastered in your undergraduate coursework.
