Sports Medicine Programs at EAC

Our Associate of Arts in Sports Studies prepares students to pursue a major in athletic training, wellness, kinesiology, and other related sports medicine fields at a four-year institution. This degree meets the requirements for the first two years of a bachelor’s program at Arizona’s public, and many other, universities. You can transfer with junior status after building a strong academic foundation in small, stimulating classes taught by quality faculty and offered at an extremely affordable tuition cost. You are encouraged to work closely with an academic adviser and consult the official transfer guide to ensure you are on the correct course to maximize course transferability. 


Become a Certified Personal Trainer as a High School Student

High school students with junior or senior status can earn the Sports Medicine & Rehabilitative Therapies Certificate through the Gila Institute for Technology. Upon completion of the certificate, you can work toward an Associate of Applied Science in General Technical Studies or an Associate of Arts in Sports Studies. Students in the certificate program prepare to sit for the certification test to become a nationally accredited ACE personal fitness trainer.

My classes are interesting because the instructor doesn't just use textbook notes. He tells stories that give a real-world look into the field and how our knowledge can be applied.
