Master of Science: Athletic Training
Classes begin Summer Session
California University of Pennsylvania has a long history of providing entry level and advanced athletic training education.
Commencing with the 2016 Summer cohort the graduate level program in athletic training is voluntarily withdrawing from CAATE accreditation. Students enrolled in courses beginning May 2016 will NOT be enrolled in a CAATE accredited post-professional program. Course content and graduate assistantship packages will remain the same. You are not obligated to receive an assistantship to enroll in the graduate program.
Our courses and advanced clinical experiences will allow you to develop skills beyond entry level preparing you to excel in the profession of athletic training.
Specifically the program provides students with knowledge and experience in the following areas:
- Performance Enhancement in Physical Activity
- Leadership and Professional Development
- Technology in Athletic Training
As a student entering this program, you will receive a Master of Science degree and will complete the requirements in one calendar year. Graduates of the program are eligible to receive national certification as a Performance Enhancement Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine throough academic coursework.
You will learn how to use the same Optimum Performance Training Model used by the NASM for training Olympic and professional athletes. In addition, research and clinical experiences are an integral component of the program that will enhance your professional preparation.
