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:
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).
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.
