Athletic Training

Spalding University’s Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program educates athletic trainers who are equipped and qualified to practice in a myriad of  settings. Our students engage in classroom and clinical learning that is patient centered and team oriented. As professionals, our graduates are critical thinkers and take a holistic approach to rehabilitation that is just as focused on injury prevention as it is healing.

For individuals seeking a career in athletic training, the MSAT program at Spalding University offers two entry points:

B.S. in Natural Science to M.S. in Athletic Training

This combined Bachelor of Science in Natural Science (BSNS)/ Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree can be earned by individuals who have not completed an undergraduate degree in any area of study.

Upon completion of MSAT prerequisites and University Studies’ requirements, the student can complete the professional phase of the program on a full-time basis in two years. Upon successful completion of undergraduate coursework including 34 major course of study credit hours (120 credit hours total), the student will be awarded a BSNS. After successful completion of the remaining major courses (33 credit hours), the student will earn a MSAT degree (total of 153 credit hours).

M.S. in Athletic Training

Any student who has completed a bachelor’s degree in a field of study other than athletic training and has completed the prerequisite coursework, may apply directly to the two-year (67 credit hour) MSAT program.
