Athletic Trainers[1] work for professional and university sports teams and in hospitals and clinics assessing injuries and providing patient therapy. Ready at the sidelines and in the locker rooms, they provide both immediate care and training in injury-prevention techniques. A bachelor's degree is required and may be earned through either a public or private four-year university.

Typical costs:

  • Public colleges are supported in part by tax dollars, so state residents pay lower tuition rates. In-state fees and tuitionaveraged about $5,000 during 2006-2007.
  • Mississippi's Alcorn State University 2008-2009 tuition is set near $4,500 per year, totaling $18,000 overall for residents and about $10,700 annually for out-of-state students.
  • The University of Illinois[2] at Urbana-Champaign offers an athletic training program for around $9,200 per year or about $36,800 for the four-year bachelor's program for students beginning in 2008-2009. Non resident tuition runs about $11,500 per year.
  • A degree in Athletic Training through a private college cost around $20,000 per year during 2006-2007 or around $80,000 for a complete degree program. Ohio's Ashland University[3] 2008-2009 tuition is set at $23,550 or $94,200 when multiplied by four years.
  • Sargent at Boston University College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences offers tuition at $36,540 for the 2008-2009 school year, or $146,160 for the degree program.

Discounts:
