The MSAT program is a professional (entry-level) athletic training program for students who who wish to pursue athletic training credentials by the Board of Certification (BOC) and pursue a career as a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC).
It is a two year full-time graduate program. There are two options for the MSAT program: 2 year and 5 year. The 2 year option is for students who will have completed a bachelor's degree prior to the beginning of the master's program. The 5 year option is a dual degree program for incoming freshmen allowing them to complete a BS in Kinesiology and a MS in Athletic Training in five years. No matter the option, students will take the same coursework during the two year professional phase.
The MSAT program offers the highest quality of athletic training education providing both a stimulating academic environment and an in depth hands on clinical experience.
