Prepare to become a certified athletic trainer with the entry-level Master of Science in Athletic Training in Temple’s College of Public Health.

  • injury or illness prevention and wellness protection,
  • clinical evaluation and diagnosis,

  • treatment and rehabilitation, and
  • organizational and professional health and well-being.

In the MSAT program, you will learn to evaluate research literature in order to make evidence-based decisions in your future practice with patients. Coursework integrates cultural competency and professionalism in global healthcare delivery. The program includes a special emphasis on concussion and mild traumatic brain injury education. Students also learn to collaborate effectively with interprofessional healthcare teams, patients and athletic program administrators.

Athletic trainers work with a broad range of people including professional athletes, individuals engaged in recreational sports and activities, and those whose employment requires physical movement. Our graduates are employed in a wide range of athletic training environments, including professional, college and high school sports; sports medicine and physical therapy clinics; and nontraditional settings in which employees are conducting physical activity and are at risk of movement-related injury.
