Marietta's excellent reputation in Athletic Training opens the door for graduates, who are accepted into some of the most competitive health-related graduate programs in the country. In fact, many of our graduates go on to earn a master's, Ph.D., or professional degree, and eventually pursue careers in sports medicine, physical therapy, exercise physiology, nutrition, medicine and nursing.
Our students have earned advanced degrees from the University of Virginia, the University of North Carolina, the University of Arizona, Ohio University, the University of Cincinnati, Marshall University, Chatham University, Widener University, Hahneman University, and the University of Pittsburgh.
Because our majors are qualified to sit for the BOC exam prior to graduation, they can enter the job market as certified athletic trainers (ATCs). Graduates who enter the work force immediately after graduation can work as athletic trainers at the high school level, at colleges and universities, with professional sports teams, and in the clinical or industrial rehabilitation setting.
Our graduates include the fitness director for Honda of America, an exercise counselor at an executive fitness center, owner of a corporate fitness business, as well as countless physical therapists, physicians, nurses, and, of course, athletic trainers.
