Get your career in shape
The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program at Alvernia University provides students with an intellectual and clinical foundation, enabling them to play an important role in the health care of athletes, those involved in physical activity, and those who seek to incorporate activity and wellness into their lives. The program combines Alvernia’s Franciscan core values with the foundation of evidence-based practice in theory and clinical experiences. Graduates of the MSAT program become highly qualified health professionals in the field of athletic training capable of “knowledge joined with love.”
Athletic trainers focus on the prevention, assessment, immediate care, and rehabilitation alongside of physicians. Our program offers a wide foundation of skills to address injuries and illnesses resulting from sport, recreation, work, and other physical activities.
Alvernia offers two MSAT degree tracks:
- The post-baccalaureate MSAT program option features accelerated scheduling that allows for completion of the MSAT in two years for post-baccalaureate students.
- The five-year MSAT gives students a breadth and depth of knowledge in the field of athletic training, as well as in the liberal arts.
