Department of Athletic Training

The Department of Athletic Training is the academic home for the Master of Science in Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.) degree program. The Department also collaborates with our undergraduate partners to offer the accelerated Dual Degree Program in Athletic Training (B.A./B.S. + M.S.A.T.).

The Department of Athletic Training is based within the School of Health and Medical Sciences, which provides a rigorous and rewarding environment for the study of Athletic Training within a larger healthcare context. With its strong emphasis on interprofessional education, our athletic training students and faculty benefit from a wide array of perspectives in developing and enhancing their field of study.

Academic Programs


The M.S.A.T. program was initially accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education in October 2003. In 2009, the program received a 10-year re-accreditation, which is in effect until 2019. More on Accreditation »
