The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program at Eastern Washington University is designed to produce intelligent, dedicated, and motivated health care professionals who will be able to work competently with diverse populations in a variety of athletic training and sports medicine settings. To complete this goal, the program will provide students with periods of full-time clinical engagement; a strong foundation in scientific knowledge including prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illness; and opportunities to work side by side with a variety of faculty and staff in a variety of educational and clinical settings.
The program is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) with our next accreditation cycle occurring in the 2027-28 academic year.
Students have two options for entering and completing the MSAT program.
- Students can select to complete a dual-degree (5-year) option. This option allows students to earn both a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science: Pre-Athletic Training as well as a Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT). It is an intensive full-time format that integrates coursework and clinical experience and provides students eligibility and excellent preparation for national certification.
- Students that have already completed their bachelor’s degree at Eastern or another institution can complete a single-degree (2-year) option that also includes a full-time format that integrates coursework and clinical experience and provides students eligibility and excellent preparation for national certification.
