As specialists in sports medicine, athletic trainers prevent, evaluate and intervene when patients and athletes face injuries or other medical conditions. In the process, they touch the life of each person they treat.
Our career-oriented Master of Science in Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.) degree program is the state's only entry-level master's program with accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.
We put you in the field right away: clinical rotations begin your first semester, and you'll work in a variety of settings before graduation.
Our program’s graduates consistently receive job offers after graduation and their Board of Certification first-time pass rate is well above the national average. They now work with athletes and physically active individuals in well-known organizations including NCAA sports teams, the NFL's Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots, Cirque du Soleil, as well many public and private high schools.

Our faculty are Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) who have significant clinical, teaching and research experience. They are involved in local, regional and national athletic training and sports medicine networks and maintain strong connections with practicing ATCs, athletic directors, team physicians and other industry professionals. As a master's student, you will also work side-by-side with faculty on clinical research projects and community outreach to strengthen your athletic training skills.
