Would I be able to begin my journey as a recreational therapist with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology? & What major should I choose for my master's degree if I don't obtain it in recreational therapy? I just moved from CA to AR and decided I want to pursue a career in recreational therapy, preferably in a mental health facility setting. I would like to pursue my master's degree as well, but the University of Arkansas (which is the most affordable option for me) doesn't have that as a major. Depending on these responses I might just pursue my masters directly in RT online somewhere else.

Is it possible to become an Athletic Trainer and a Physical Therapist?
My goal is to be a professional in sports medicine field. I came from another country to learn sports medicine as I want to become an Athletic Trainer. I know it is pretty hard since I am a second language learner, however I am also interested in nutrition, physical therapy, and orthopaedic/sports doctor. Becoming a sports doctor might be impossible, so I was thinking about majoring in kinesiology and have a minor in nutrition (4 year university), but if it is possible, I would like to become both an athletic trainer and a physical therapist. I am currently in Community College with Kinesiology major. The hardest point here is I am 23 yrs old and have a 2 yrs old son. I really want to be woking for patients and athletes. Is it possible for me to get double licenses? If so, after I finish BS in Kinesiology, can I apply for DPT? Sorry for complicated details.
