The Master of Science in Athletic Training is a 24-month, 70-credit, full-time program designed to prepare students for clinical practice. The program consists of both didactic and clinical education, as students learn how to care for patients in a variety of settings such as interscholastic, intercollegiate, and professional sports settings; hospital, clinical, and physician office settings, and a range of others. Students learn to care for patients across the lifespan, from adolescents to the elderly. The mission of the Athletic Training Program (ATP) is to provide students with the strong scientific foundation and evidence-based knowledge and extensive practical experience needed to become a certified Athletic Trainer (ATC).
Upon completion of the M.S. degree in Athletic Training at Marist, graduates will be eligible to sit for the certification examination administered by the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC). Those passing this exam will be certified as Athletic Trainers by the BOC. Completion of the ATP qualifies students for entry-level positions in high schools, colleges, and universities; professional sports organizations; hospitals, clinics and physician offices; military, performing arts, corporate and industrial settings. Marist’s ATP is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and is registered with the New York State Education Department as a licensure-qualifying degree program.
