Master of Science in Athletic Training


The mission of the Master of Science in Athletic Training Program is to develop and educate students of the high plains region and beyond to become competent healthcare providers in the skills of athletic training.  The MSAT program will provide instructional experiences that promote rural healthcare, remote and wilderness medicine, and a cultural understanding for the people who live, work, and play in the rural, rugged, and diverse high plains regions.

Student Learning Outcomes

The Master of Science in Athletic Training program (MSAT) is intended to prepare graduates to critically analyze and convey information to patients, colleagues and other health professionals. These clinicians will be able to provide a broad range of patient care services and perform research and administrative responsibilities. This is accomplished through students and faculty building collaborations, participating in professional organizations in athletic training, and administering athletic training services.

Students develop the knowledge and skills needed to perform as athletic
training clinicians and to grow and adapt to the rapid changes in the profession and health care.
