About Athletic Training
The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) is a competitive entry CAATE accredited professional level program. The MSAT program is for students who wish to pursue athletic training credentials by the Board of Certification (BOC) and pursue a career as a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC).
|Two-Year Program||Five-Year Program|
|Traditional 4+2 program||Dual degree 3+2 program for incoming first-year students (freshmen).|
|Students complete a bachelor's degree before beginning the two year masters program.||Students complete a BS in Kinesiology and an MS in Athletic Training in 5 years. Prospective students interested in this option will apply to Texas A&M as an undergraduate Kinesiology student. If accepted, during the New Student Conference, students will declare interest in pursuing the dual degree program and will be placed with an undergraduate advisor in this area.|
Note: If you are a current undergraduate student, it is likely that you will need to pursue the 4+2 option. You will complete an undergraduate degree in your choice of major (Kinesiology is common) and apply to the MSAT program. You should contact an undergraduate academic advisor to help you determine your options.
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.
