The Athletic Training Program. The athletic training program consists of a professional master’s degree program (MSAT), post-professional Master of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Athletic Training, and 100% online clinical doctorate program (DAT). In total, the program enrolls about 60-70 students taught currently by five full-time athletic training faculty with various clinical and research backgrounds who emphasize student learning & development through innovative and evidence based teaching practices. Our newly renovated (2017) academic space, located in Pearson Hall, features a smart classroom with ceiling-mount and wall-mount cameras for demonstrations and class capture, innovative teaching tools, and a wet lab with modalities adjacent to the teaching space. The MSAT program currently has affiliation agreements with over thirty clinical education sites and over forty preceptors.
