Are there any HBCU athletic training programs?

Hi y'all! I'm looking to combine my love for sports and medicine, and I'm curious about athletic training programs at HBCUs. Does anyone know of specific HBCUs with strong programs in this field? Any advice or experiences you can share would be super helpful in making my college choice!

Hello! It's wonderful to hear about your interest in athletic training programs, and seeking one at an HBCU is a thoughtful choice. Many HBCUs do offer strong programs in this field. One of the notable ones is North Carolina Central University, which has a comprehensive program that prepares students with both the practical skills and academic knowledge required for certification and careers in athletic training. It's accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

Another HBCU you might consider is the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. They offer a Health and Physical Education program that can provide a strong foundation in the principles of athletic training. Keep in mind, what's most important is finding a program that gives you hands-on experience, possibly through internships or other practical learning opportunities, as those will be invaluable when you step into the field professionally. I'd recommend visiting the campuses, if possible, and speaking with faculty members and current students in the programs to get a sense of which college will be the best fit for your aspirations and interests.
