The Department of Kinesiology at Texas Christian University (TCU) is excited to announce the approval of the Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) by the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. TCU’s undergraduate Athletic Training program will transition to the new professional graduate degree program which is currently taking applications for Summer 2021.
Accredited by the CAATE, the 54-hour professional athletic training degree provides graduates the skills to be life-long learners by providing quality didactic, clinical, and interprofessional experiences. Graduates of the program will be prepared to successfully pass the Board of Certification Inc. (BOC), certification exam. 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.
TCU will offer two options for completing a Master of Science in Athletic Training. The 3+2 accelerated option allows students to complete an MSAT degree in combination with a B.S. in Movement Science in only five years. The two-year program option is for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree and have met the required prerequisites.
