Athletic Training


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments

As an athletic trainer (AT), you may be one of the first on the scene, quickly assessing an injury. You have the opportunity to serve many types of patients, by providing assessment and preventative, therapeutic or rehabilitation care of injuries. Athletic trainers are multi-skilled health care professionals who provide care to patients in a variety of settings including high schools, university athletics, professional athletics, hospitals, orthopedic clinics, performing arts and corporations.

Northwestern’s pre-athletic training program prepares students for entrance into an athletic training professional program and an eventual career as an AT. Most students who are interested in Northwestern’s pre-athletic training program will major in Exercise Science and graduate with a  B.A. degree in Exercise Science before entering a 2-year AT professional program; however, students can choose to major in another program at Northwestern College and meet the prerequisite coursework prior to applying for acceptance into an AT professional program.
