The mission of the Sports Medicine Department is to challenge learners to be critical thinkers and advocates for the healthcare professions. The program aims to equip students with foundational knowledge in science and health-related fields as well as prepare them to be directed, life-long learners.
What You'll Learn in the Sports Medicine Program.
The Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine major is intended for those students wanting to enter the Master of Athletic Training Program at Marietta College. Students who decide not to continue into the master's degree can complete and graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine degree. Students who are interested in other healthcare professions such as physical therapy, physician assistant, or other professions should look into another science-related major such as Health Science, Biology, or Chemistry.
- Can Sports Medicine majors study abroad and still graduate on time?
Yes! Every major at Marietta can have an Education Abroad experience at some point during their undergraduate education.
- Do Sports Medicine majors provide care to student-athletes and athletic teams?
Sports Medicine majors observe and learn from our professional staff and graduate Athletic Training students in clinical situations but do not provide direct treatment to athletes.
