SUMMARY

Studying Athletic Training is not only a valuable choice, but usually a mandatory first step for students intending to enter a career as a nba head trainer, a nfl head trainer, or a mlb head trainer. Interestingly, nationally, athletic training is a fairly common choice coming in at the 100th most popular major. Last year, there were 3,597 athletic training degrees conferred. In-state tuition for athletic training at private universities is, on average, 3.4 times more pricey than their public rivals.

There are 347 colleges that offer athletic training. 347 institutions is on par with other programs offered in the United States. If you're looking to surround yourself with other athletic training undergrads, consider colleges in Pennsylvania which have more students admitted to athletic training than any other state. More generally, the best region to study athletic training is in the Southeast region with The University of Alabama, Florida State University, and University of North Florida best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the best conference to study athletic training is the Big Ten Conference with Michigan State University, Ohio State University-Main Campus, and Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus representing the conference. From our extensive list on the best colleges, our belief is that the best school for athletic training is Boston University.

The objectively 'best' school does not have to be the 'best' school for every student. There can be tons more perspectives to think about when selecting institution. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely change your inclinations on which school to attend. Here at Authority, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which athletic training school is home to the top college campus, the answer is Boston University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which college has the best campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life and our selection of the college with the best student life for athletic training is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Some of our conclusions might surprise you.

If cost is a significant influence in your choice of where you attend school, you might consider avoiding Boston University. Boston University is the most expensive college for athletic training, at least regarding out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Boston University into perspective. For more context, you could be interested to know that athletic training is the 145th most expensive degree in America, with an average bill of $34,300. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for athletic training on our list is Oregon with tuition and fees at the main university, George Fox University, of $36,750. Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the U.S. for athletic training is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Quinnipiac University with a cost of $46,790, Sacred Heart University with a cost of $42,800, and Boston University with a cost of $54,720.

Our cheapest region for athletic training is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Colorado State University-Pueblo with a cost of $19,658, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and Weber State University with a cost of $14,973. In better news, the most affordable school for athletic training is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,100 for a degree in athletic training. The price balloons by a lot to a median of $22,200 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. Our pick for the school representing the best value for athletic training: University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. On this page you can find our comprehensive list for the universities we see as being the best value in general. Do know, this list is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for athletic training students can differ, but within two-years of finishing the degree graduates will typically make around $42,100. While there is much variation in earnings potential; top earners can make up to $65,000. Even straight out of university, the lowest earning positions within the athletic training field earn $27,100, which isn't that bad. The top earning graduates from athletic training attended Boston University and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The overall diversity of athletic training sits subpar, being in the 25th percentile of all programs. The university with the most composite diversity for athletic training is Boston University and here you can find our general list of the universities which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Athletic Training major only ranks in the 58th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 22nd percentile. White collegians compose the largest share at 74% of scholars studying athletic training. Additionally, 62% of scholars seeking an athletic training major are women.

The median score for athletic training professors is 4.5 stars, a rating which is 13% above the median for all majors; which is a pretty good score. If you are interested in the most popular athletic training professor nationally, look no further than Marc Ellington at University of North Carolina Wilmington. It might be shocking, but the best rated professors for athletic training by student come from University of North Carolina Wilmington. As we including data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the college possessing comprehensively the best professors for athletic training is University of Delaware. One will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as many of the finest professors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for athletic training is Boston University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a general page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that looking at college with a perspective primarily shaped by superlatives might cause problems. We at Authority encourage you to read our more focused pages on different schools and explore some of our background 'blog posts' on useful details to look for as your school search develops.
