Trying to avoid cubicle jobs? Sports fan? Athletic training just might be for you. Active, hard-working students should explore this field. First off, visit Occupational Outlook Handbook to learn more about the career itself. Second, you can read online about Baylor’s Athletic Training major. Athletic training requires long hours, including early mornings and working outside. It can be a rewarding career for those who enjoy working with an active population.
Baylor’s program is quite structured compared to some other majors. If it appears that you are too far behind to complete the degree on time, you could also consider an entry-level Master’s degree program in athletic training. The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education accredits such programs and maintains a database. These programs could be good options for prehealth students looking for a “Plan B.”
