Cohort Starts Annually
Stay Up-To-Date with Changes
Stay up-to-date with changes in AT education and practice requirements. By 2020, all undergraduate AT programs had to comply with the new 7th Edition Practice Analysis for ATs required by CAATE. By 2022, the athletic training profession is transitioning to an entry-level point of a Master’s of Athletic Training Practice. The MSATP degree allows you to stay up-to-date with those changes, by focusing on areas of specialization and the evolving demands of the profession. Become a skilled, evidence-based clinician with advanced practitioner techniques and the new competencies as outlined in the 7th Edition of the Practice Analysis.
Develop Advanced Competencies
Develop expertise in general medicine, psychosocial interventions, diagnosis, testing and interpretations. Deepen your knowledge of orthopedic applications and procedures, emergency procedures and care, biomedical testing and imaging and more. Advance knowledge and skills with non-traditional therapeutic interventions like dry needling, blood flow restriction, and manual therapies.
Designed for Practicing ATs
Earn your Master’s in athletic training while you work. Our MSATP is designed under a transitional model for athletic trainers who are working to earn their master’s degree. Our program is primarily online over 6 semesters, so students can continue to work as ATs
Accelerated Program Option
Earn your master’s in AT in under 2 years by choosing our accelerated pathway. The accelerated program includes 8-week courses. You can choose to take these 8-week courses whenever each course is offered.
Bridge to our PhD Program
Earn your terminal academic degree and move into academia, scholarship, leadership, and more. After completing the MSATP, some credits are transferable to our PhD in Health Sciences. Choose from PhD concentration tracks such as Athletic Training, Human & Sport Performance, or Health Promotion & Wellness.
Our curriculum is designed to help you advance your career as an athletic trainer and prepare you to address the evolving field of athletic training.
