UNK Adds Master Of Athletic Training Degree

KEARNEY- In fall 2018, the University of Nebraska-Kearney will take a big step toward increasing its footprint in the field when it adds a Master of Athletic Training degree.

It is the first graduate program added at UNK since it became part of the University of Nebraska system in 1991. The new Master of Athletic Training major will prepare students for employment in professional athletic training positions at universities, high schools, hospitals and clinics, with professional sports teams and others.

Greg Limbach, head athletic trainer at Kearney High School said the hope is that more and more school districts in central Nebraska, and nationally, will see the need for athletic trainers in all high schools.
