Master of Science, Kinesiology, Athletic Training Emphasis


This two year post-certification graduate athletic training program is designed to provide NATA-BOC Certified Athletic Trainers with the opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills in the areas of clinical practice, instruction, and research. All matriculated students complete a core curriculum supplemented by one of two self-selected emphasis areas (Clinical Instruction or Clinical Foundations) providing enhancement of the student’s personal and professional goals (see Program of Study). Students who choose the Clinical Instruction emphasis area will be provided teaching opportunities in our CAATE accredited undergraduate program, while those choosing the Clinical Foundations emphasis area will choose courses in areas that will expand the breadth of their foundational knowledge. Completion of a committee approved thesis is required of all students for graduation.
