The MSAT program is for students interested in becoming athletic trainers. It is a professional master's degree that provides entry to the athletic training profession upon successfully challenging the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. As such, the core courses will address the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of entry-level athletic trainers. Athletic trainers are health care providers who work collaboratively with other health care providers in schools, universities, clinics, physician offices, with law enforcement, the military, etc. to prevent, evaluate, and manage injuries/illnesses in the physically active population.
This 65-credit program requires full-time attendance for 24 months and combines classroom and laboratory learning with clinical rotations in which students provide care to patients under the direct supervision of a preceptor.
The Master of Science in Athletic Training program at UNCP is one of the best values in North Carolina. Enrolling in this CAATE-accredited program will offer you a competitive edge in your career.
