Master of Science in Athletic Training

The KU Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program is a 2-year full-time graduate program designed to prepare an entry-level practitioner and foster lifelong professional development. The program begins the Tuesday after Memorial Day and includes classroom, laboratory, scholarship, and clinical education opportunities.

As a leader in academic health sciences, the KU Medical Center provides ample opportunity for athletic training students to interact with a large number of health care professionals as well as students from other disciplines.

The University of Kansas is currently seeking accreditation for its new athletic training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on July 1, 2022. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited. Students that graduate from the program prior to accreditation will not be eligible to sit for the credentialing examination for athletic trainers and will not be eligible for licensure in most states.
