Opportunities After Graduation

Typically, 75% of our graduates move on to graduate study. The majority of these students complete their graduate study in Athletic Training (or a related field such as Exercise Science, Sports Medicine, etc.). In addition to those choosing Athletic Training, many students enroll in Physical Therapy school to pursue their Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). Other options for graduate study include Physicians Assistant (PA) and education.

Options at the University

Due to accreditation requirements, we are no longer accepting Freshman as Athletic Training Intents. Pending approval from SUNY and the State Education Department, Brockport plans to transition from a Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic Training to a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training.

For new or prospective students joining the University, we offer multiple majors in our department that fulfill the requirements to pursue a master’s degree in Athletic Training.

For those students electing to enter the workforce directly after graduation, most find employment in sports medicine clinics and the high school setting.
