Master of Athletic Training

The University of Mobile has developed a dynamic approach for a student wishing to pursue the Master of Athletic Training. This approach provides opportunities for both traditional and non-traditional students, regardless of where the student begins the process.

An incoming freshman can begin work in Pre-Athletic Training or the Pre-Athletic Training Accelerated Bachelor’s Program. Pre-Athletic Training track is designed to span four years. Pre-Athletic Training Accelerated Bachelor’s Program allows a student to move swiftly through both undergraduate and prerequisite requirements earlier than the non-accelerated route. Admission to the MAT is not guaranteed, but it does allow the student to complete undergraduate and prerequisite coursework at an accelerated rate. Students that have previously been granted a degree can also apply once prerequisites are completed and all admission requirements have been met. This two-year program is specifically designed for the highly competitive student, interested in a combined liberal arts experience and professional component in athletic training.
