In Carroll University’s Master of Science of Athletic Training program, you’ll learn how to effectively provide care for others as you interact with patients of all ages and abilities in a variety of areas. You’ll apply what you’ve learned in the classroom through hands-on experience working with varied patient populations at local clinical placements and internship opportunities around the country. This combination of intensive coursework and practical clinical situations will develop you into a well-rounded and knowledgeable healthcare professional.
Your classroom experience will include time spent in our new, state-of-the-art, Michael and Mary Jaharis Science Laboratories, including the study of the human body in our cadaver laboratory. Though athletic trainers work externally to prevent and treat injuries, this unique opportunity provides you with excellent foundational knowledge in human anatomy and adds to your qualifications and experience. In your final semester you’ll participate in a required 12-week internship and fully immerse yourself working full time in the profession. With help from faculty, you’ll choose an internship that allows you to succeed and fits your career goals best. Our students have worked all over the country in high schools, rehabilitation clinics, Division I institutions, professional baseball and performing arts organizations among others. All of these experiences will help grow your network and allow you to make connections in the community as you begin your job search.
Interested students may learn more about clinical education and internship requirements by viewing the MSAT Student Handbook. It should be noted that students will be responsible for transportation and potential housing costs while participating in clinical education practicums and internships.
The University has received Higher Learning Commission approval to offer the degree and is currently seeking approval from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
