Ambassadors | Master of Science in Athletic Training

Each year, ambassadors volunteer their time and energy to be the student voice of the MSAT program. All of our ambassadors are actively involved on campus and work closely with the Admissions Office to provide an invaluable resource for prospective students.

We encourage you to speak with a current student about their experience applying to and choosing Pacific University's Master of Science in Athletic Training. Ambassadors' emails are provided below, and they will be happy to help you learn why Pacific is the school for you! You can also follow the MSAT program on Instagram @pacificu.msat!
