The Department of Athletic Training will begin accepting graduate applications beginning early fall for the Inaugural Class of 2022 who will start coursework in the Summer of 2020. A limited number of students will be accepted per cohort.

Admission to the Masters of Athletic Training Program will be based on the following requirements:
