The Department of Health Science Professions has accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) for its Master of Athletic Training (M.A.T.) degree program.
Our program features four 8-week immersive clinical courses that provide you with practical experience in first aid, emergency management, patient assessment, research methods, diagnosis and management of injuries, therapeutic modalities and rehabilitation. You’ll gain essential clinical skills while practicing in collegiate, clinical, high school and general medical settings.
Many of your classes will be in our new Health and Human Services Building that features state-of-the-art labs, advanced software applications and smart classrooms - and in our Ben Kelly Center for Human Performance with its exercise, training and therapy areas. They are also where you will conduct important faculty-mentored research projects that you can then present at ASU’s annual Graduate Research Showcase.
Joint Degree Plan Available
How long does it take to get a master’s degree in athletic training? If you already have a bachelor’s degree, our M.A.T. degree can be completed in two years by full-time students. We also offer a joint degree plan that allows you to earn a Bachelor of Science in Health Science Professions degree and your M.A.T. in as little as five years.
