Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.)
Master of Science in Athletic Training. Major in Athletic Training.
The M.S.A.T. is an entry level program designed to prepare students to become a certified athletic trainer. After successful completion of this program students will be eligible for the athletic training national Board of Certification Exam.
M.S.A.T. Admission Requirements.
Students are eligible to apply for admission to the MSAT program via two distinct routes:
Students who have obtained a bachelor’s degree (3.0 or >3.0) and the required prerequisite coursework (4 credit hours of human anatomy or equivalent & 4 credit hours of human physiology or equivalent) are eligible for consideration of admission to the MSAT.
Students who are enrolled in an academic institution with whom the University of Idaho and the MSAT have a 3+2 transitional program articulation1 agreement may apply to the MSAT during their junior year of study for entrance in early summer with Tentative Admittance2. Students must be approved for application to the 3+2 program from their specified undergraduate program director (and have met the criteria within the articulation agreement) before they apply to the MSAT.3
The University of Idaho’s 3+2 program leading to the application to the MSAT is the Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with a major in Exercise Science and Health (3+2 track). Please contact the Division of Athletic Training for information regarding other Universities with approved MSAT 3+2 articulation agreements.
Students may be admitted to the MSAT "Tentatively", without first having had completed a Bachelor’s degree. These students will apply the first two semesters of the MSAT curriculum to their undergraduate degree in order to satisfy their Bachelor’s degree requirements. Students will apply for graduation during the Fall of their first year in the MSAT program and will have the "Tentative Admittance" removed upon fulfilling all requirements of their Bachelor’s degree program.
The 3+2 program will meet all other admission standards set forth by the College of Graduate Studies and the Masters of Science in Athletic Training Program.
