Non-credit Professional Development Requirements

In addition to the 50 credit hours of coursework, students are required to gain approximately two weeks of clinical experience during assigned pre-season athletic practices during August of each year in the program. Students are also required to attend weekly in-services and journal club sessions during each of the fall and spring semesters in the program.

The M.S.A.T. degree should not be confused with the Kinesiology M.S. degree with a focus in sports medicine/athletic training. We offer sports medicine/athletic training graduate programs of study through our Applied Neuromechanics Research Laboratory for students who are already certified athletic trainers.
