As specialists in sports medicine, athletic trainers prevent, evaluate and intervene when patients and athletes face injuries or other medical conditions. In the process, they touch the life of each person they treat. The Athletic Training program is offered by Seton Hall University.


Our career-oriented Master of Science in Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.) degree program offered by Seton Hall University is the state's only entry-level master's program with accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.

The programme

  • We put you in the field right away: clinical rotations begin your first semester, and you'll work in a variety of settings before graduation.
  • Our program’s graduates consistently receive job offers after graduation and their Board of Certification first-time pass rate is well above the national average. They now work with athletes and physically active individuals in well-known organizations including NCAA sports teams, the NFL's Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots, Cirque du Soleil, as well many public and private high schools.
