Master of Athletic Training

Undergraduate Freshmen or Transfer

The Pre-Athletic Training Concentration in the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology program allows the student to complete prerequisites for graduate programs in athletic training while completing courses in Kinesiology.

Graduate Students

The Master of Athletic Training (MAT) program is a two-year, 62-credit-hour program that prepares students through both didactic and clinical experiences to sit for the Board of Certification Exam.

The Program

The Master of Athletic Training program prepares graduates to collaboratively work with all health care professionals to provide, administer and manage the health care of patients across a lifespan; to participate in research and other activities designed to advance the quality of athletic training services; and to be advocates in building a solid foundation for future professionals, clients and the public regarding the profession of athletic training.

The demand for athletic trainers is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations. Some characteristics of professionals in the field of athletic training include adaptability, communication skills, high ethical standards, confidence, empathy and attention to detail.
