The WSU Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree is designed to enable students with a bachelor’s degree in an area other than athletic training to obtain eligibility for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. This program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Graduates of the MSAT are eligible for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination.
The program provides students with knowledge and skills in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and general medical conditions. The Master of Science in Athletic Training program is specifically designed to prepare students for a career in health care as a certified athletic trainer. Athletic trainers are currently employed in colleges and universities, public and private high schools, corporations, rehabilitation clinics, professional sports organizations, the military, factories, and hospitals (www.nata.org - National Athletic Trainers’ Association).
