Earn your master’s in athletic training in just five years of study.

Athletic training tape and other materials.

This unique five-year program will lead to both a bachelor’s and master’s degree upon completion. Prepare to enter a competitive, game-changing career field.

As a student in the pre-athletic training program, you’ll begin by learning how to help every individual achieve optimal levels of health and well-being. Then you’ll transition into the Waynesburg University Master of Science in Athletic Training program.

In addition to exercise science knowledge, you’ll integrate academic coursework with clinical practice once enrolled in the MSAT program to acquire psychomotor and critical thinking skills necessary for a successful career in athletic training. You’ll graduate prepared to take the Board of Certification (BOC) exam and become a lifelong learner of medicine with the growing Athletic Training field.
