Master of Science - Credits: 34-35 (program code: 0330)
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 not be affected.
Graduate students enrolled in the program may receive a graduate assistantship as part of their advanced clinical experience, but are not obligated to accept it. Advanced clinical experiences occur from mid-August to approximately the end of May the following year. Clinical experiences take place at area high schools, local colleges and California University of Pennsylvania. The graduate assistantship includes a full tuition waiver and a $10,000 stipend.
Traditional (on-ground, face-to-face delivery, with some online/distance elements)
Graduate students enrolled in the program also receive a graduate assistantship as part of their advanced clinical experience. The graduate assistantship includes a full tuition waiver and a $10,000 stipend.
Students in the athletic training program receive academic and professional advisement from the program coordinator and program faculty. Each student is assigned to an academic adviser from the time he/she is accepted into the program of study. Advisers work with students to discuss, monitor and provide advisement as it relates to their program of study.
