Master of Science in Athletic Training

MS-athletic-trainingThe 2-year post-baccalaureate MSAT option is for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree (not in athletic training) and wish to enter the profession and earn the credential as a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC).

The MSAT curriculum is rooted in basic sciences, emergency care, orthopedic injury assessment and diagnosis, and therapeutic interventions while offering advanced coursework in gross anatomy with cadaver dissection, clinical decision making, applied neuromuscular and biomechanical concepts, orthopedic casting and bracing, optimizing athletic performance, and pathophysiology. The unique curriculum is enhanced through the use of high fidelity patient simulators, state-of-the art motion analysis equipment, and exceptional clinical facilities. Students will gain in-depth knowledge of evidence-based clinical practice and gain experiences in clinical decision making that are synthesized across concepts spanning the full scope of practice of an athletic trainer with particular focus on musculoskeletal assessment/diagnosis and therapeutic interventions.

The MSAT requires 70 credits of graduate coursework that is completed over the course of 24 months and requires continuous enrollment. Didactic and clinical courses are sequenced to allow for the greatest amount of depth in both content and clinical application.
