The mission of the Department of Athletic Training is to provide high quality professional education that incorporates a focus on prevention, a liberal arts foundation, care for whole person, commitment to social justice, and collaboration with community partners and other healthcare providers to improve the quality of life in our comunity. 

The Department of Athletic Training offers an undergraduate major in health and wellness, a minor in exercise science and fitness, and is seeking approval to award the Master of Athletic Training degree.  We also offer physical activity classes for the general student population.

Our department incorporates evidence based practice, hands-on learning, outreach to the Cincinnati community, a commitment to the whole person, and an interdisciplinary liberal arts foundation so that students may enhance the lives of others.  Wellness includes creative, emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual dimensions.  Understanding health and the factors that affect it requires exploring areas in addition to cellular and chemical aspects of disease.
