Program Director’s Message
Welcome to the Athletic Training Program at TCU. The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) Program, accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), is housed in the Department of Kinesiology in the Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences. The academic units and programs represented by Harris College are focused on the mission of enhancing global health through education, scholarship, and innovation with the larger vision of preparing professionals who will go on to transform global health in ways that impact the world. TCU offers a small-school environment in a Power Five Conference (Big XII), which provides unique opportunities for our students.
We offer a student-centered experience that prepares competent and confident athletic training professionals with state-of-the art athletic training, academic and simulation facilities, interprofessional education opportunities, and faculty and preceptors who are dedicated to teaching and mentoring our students. The TCU Athletic Training Program has alumni working in various practice settings including professional sports, collegiate/university, secondary school, industrial, and performing arts.
TCU offers two options for the MSAT degree; a five-year (3+2) program for undergraduate students and a two-year program for students who have already completed their baccalaureate degree. Athletic Training Students will complete both integrative and immersive experience clinical experiences in intercollegiate sports, local high schools, physician practices, and rehabilitation clinics. Students also complete a general medical rotation with our TCU Team Physicians. Students will also complete an immersive field experience in the summer of their 2nd year. Currently, students are completing field experiences in physician practices, intercollegiate sports (Texas A&M, UNT, Houston Christian University, UT El Paso), and professional sports (Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, and Las Vegas Aces).
I encourage you to visit campus to discuss your academic goals in the Athletic Training profession and learn how TCU can help you reach them. Please contact me at any time to arrange a visit, or should you have any additional questions about the program. I hope to hear from you regarding your potential as an athletic training student at TCU. Go Frogs!
