Master of Science in Athletic Training
The Master of Science in Athletic Training degree is designed for those who are seeking certification as an athletic trainer from the Board of Certification (BOC). The program is two years in length and open to students who do not possess a bachelor’s degree in athletic training. It includes didactic course work, clinical skill development, and practical experience. Students obtain clinical hours in professional athletics, Division I and Division II intercollegiate athletics, high school athletics, as well as hospitals and physical therapy clinics. Students may also conduct research in the Dunigan Movement Analysis Lab and use an interdisciplinary approach in evidence-based practices. UE's program maintains small student-to-preceptor and student-to-faculty ratios.

The University of Evansville has one of approximately 130 CAATE-accredited professional-level master’s programs in the country. UE is one of three institutions in the nation that has concurrently running accredited professional athletic training programs at the bachelor’s and master’s level.
To quote Morgan Cornell (MSAT ’19), “It was the most amazing thing ever.” This most amazing thing ever was working the sidelines for Western Kentucky University’s football team on a road trip to the University of Wisconsin, ranked #4 at the time. UE’s MSAT immersive experiences with our clinical sites at WKU, University of Florida, Vanderbilt University, Northwestern University, and Louisville City FC will give our students amazing experiences!
