The Master of Athletic Training (M.A.T.) program at ACU provides comprehensive coursework, diverse clinical experiences and hands-on laboratory classes for those seeking further knowledge in the field of athletic training.
Upon graduation, you will be able to apply your athletic training skills and knowledge in areas such as evidence-based practice, prevention and health promotion, clinical examination and diagnosis, acute care of injury and illness, and therapeutic interventions.
ACU is currently seeking accreditation for their new Athletic Training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on July 1, 2019. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited. Students that graduate from the program prior to accreditation WILL NOT be eligible to sit for the credentialing examination for athletic trainers and will not be eligible for
licensure in most states.
The M.A.T. program is currently under review by SACSCOC. The program is pending SACSCOC approval, which is expected by January, 2018.
