Master of Science in Athletic Training
Athletic trainers are health care professionals who work with physicians to optimize their patients’ activity. They provide physical medicine, prevent and diagnose injury, and treat and rehabilitate acute and chronic issues that would impair or limit their patients’ activity.
Certification and licensure as an athletic trainer requires, at minimum, a degree in athletic training from an accredited college or university. According to the National Athletic Trainers Association, about 70 percent of working athletic trainers in the United States hold at least a master’s degree.
The Pacific University athletic training program offers an entry-level master of science degree in athletic training. Students who complete the program are eligible to sit for the certification exam by the Board of Certification for Athletic Trainers.
As students in the Pacific University College of Health Professions, master of science in athletic training (MSAT) students also receive access to an interdisciplinary learning environment that will help them collaborate and excel within the health care field professionally.
Pacific University’s master of science in athletic training program is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) and currently seeking accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
