TCU offers an accelerated program that allows students to complete a Master of Science in Athletic Training degree in combination with the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (Movement Science) in only 5 years (3 pre-professional years plus 2 professional years leading to two separate degrees). The Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology will be conferred in May of the 4th year of study. This program is recommended for entering freshmen and transfer students who want to pursue the athletic training degree. Transfer students will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis in regards to credits and/or time to matriculate to the professional program and should contact the Athletic Training Program Director.

The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) will prepare graduates to be confident healthcare providers and life-long learners by providing quality didactic, clinical, and interprofessional experiences. Students will develop evidence-based knowledge and skills, while demonstrating professionalism, ethical conduct, and critical thinking skills. Students will complete both integrative and immersive experiences in intercollegiate sports, high schools, rehabilitation clinics, and practice advancement settings (performing arts, physician practice, industrial, public safety). An immersive clinical experience is a practice-intensive experience that allows the student to experience the totality of care provided by athletic trainers. Students on the accelerated track may qualify for tuition-based scholarships in their 4th and 5th year at TCU and will receive a 40% tuition discount during their 5th year in the program as part of their financial aid package.
