CANTON, Mo. -- A new partnership between Culver Stockton College and Hannibal-LaGrange University will allow students to pursue a degree in athletic training.
Last month, the two schools agreed to allow graduates from Hannibal-LaGrange's exercise and sport science major to pursue A master of athletic training degree at Culver-Stockton.
"The HLGU athletic training staff has served and provided superb clinical education to C-SC students for years, and we couldn't be more pleased to collaborate with them on this next phase of the master of athletic training program," said Jay Hoffman, Culver-Stockton department chairman of athletic training and health sciences.
Master of athletic training students will complete two years of graduate study, including a variety of clinical experiences in both athletic and hospital/clinical settings, that will develop their knowledge and skills in the Canton, Hannibal, and Quincy medical communities.
Clay Biggs, chairman of the Hannibal-LaGrange Exercise and Sport Science Department, said, "We are excited about providing our graduates with another option to continue their education and pursue an advanced degree. The background that students receive in HLGU's exercise science degree will complement the (master of athletic training) program at C-SC very well."
