The UNCP MSAT is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

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 and the military, etc. to prevent, evaluate, and manage injuries/illnesses in the physically active population.
