Graduates of the AT program earn a Master of Science in Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.) degree. The AT Program is designed to prepare graduates for the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification (BOC) exam leading them to a career as a certified athletic trainer.
Non-credit Professional Development Requirements
In addition to the 49 credit hours of coursework, students are required to gain
approximately two weeks of clinical experience during assigned pre-season athletic
practices during August of each year in the program. Students are also required to attend
weekly in-services and journal club sessions during each of the fall and spring semesters
in the program.
The M.S.A.T. degree should not be confused with the Kinesiology M.S. degree with a focus in sports medicine/athletic training. We offer sports medicine/athletic training graduate programs of study through our Applied Neuromechanics Research Laboratory for students who are already certified athletic trainers.
