Master of Science in Athletic Training

Curriculum Plan

The MSAT curriculum takes two years and emphasizes clinical experiences within the context of evidence based practice. During the fall and spring semesters of the first year, students focus in musculoskeletal assessment, acute treatment and therapeutic interventions. Clinical experiences during this time allow the student to utilize these skills in a diverse patient setting. The final fall completes the students’ didactic education and prepares the student for a full immersion experiences. The full immersion experience is designed to provide students with an understanding of all aspects of athletic training and provide them the opportunity to utilize all of the skills they have learned in an integrated, advanced manner.
