Curriculum

The University of Idaho’s College of Education has two outstanding Athletic Training Education Programs. For Certified Athletic Trainers already working in the field, we offer the nation’s first Doctorate of Athletic Training (DAT) program. For those interested in becoming an athletic trainer, we offer a Master’s of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT), which prepares students for certification as an athletic trainer.

For undergraduates: a 5-year master’s option. Freshman, sophomore and junior students studying Exercise Science and Health in our Pre-Athletic Training track may apply to the MSAT program during their junior year. Those accepted begin the 2-year MSAT program their senior year.

Curriculum and Sequencing for both DAT and MSAT degrees.

  • Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT)
    Pre-requisite Coursework:
    • Human Anatomy 4 credits
    • Human Physiology 4 credits
    • Current First Aid and CPR (AHA or ARC)
    Courses in the sciences such as chemistry and physics will strengthen the prospective student’s application.
