The baccalaureate program in athletic training (AT) is a separate major within the Department of Kinesiology and Health in the College of Education and Human Services. In order to be eligible to apply to the AT Program, students should be accepted as degree-seeking students at Wright State University.

The Athletic Trainer is a qualified health care professional educated and experienced in the management of health care problems associated with the physically active. In cooperation with physicians and other allied health care personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the sports medicine team in clinics, the military, extreme sports, or as a physician extender and many other health care settings.

The Wright State AT Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) through 2016-17.
