Athletic Training Program Curriculum

The KU Athletic Training program curriculum is built on the belief that it is critical for KU students to not only gain a broad-based athletic training education, but to supplement that education with hands-on practical experience in the field. This powerful combination allows our students to excel in any athletic training environment. Freshmen and transfer students will complete the KU Core Curriculum for general education requirements. Consult the new program detail sheet (pdf).
