Master of Athletic Training students get practical, hands-on experience that prepare them for jobs. They get teaching experience in Manchester University’s program, and they have immediate opportunities for clinical rotation at off-campus locations and with the University’s athletic teams.


Manchester stands out from athletic training master's programs at competitor schools with large enrollments. At Manchester, class sizes are small, affording plenty of personal attention from highly trained, skilled faculty, making sure your questions are answered and lessons are understood.

The MAT may be completed using one of the following options:

Option ONE: Five-year program. The first three years of this program are classified as the pre-professional phase, during which time students will complete the MAT program prerequisites and requirements for an undergraduate major. The professional phase will begin during the summer prior to the student’s fourth year. 

The Master of Athletic Training (MAT) degree will be awarded at the end of the final year. This option is intended for entering first-year and transfer students. Completing the MAT degree in this manner MAY affect undergraduate financial aid availability in the student’s fourth year.

Option TWO: Two-year program. This program is for persons who have completed a baccalaureate degree in any major (other than athletic training from a CAATE-accredited program) and have met the admission requirements for the professional phase of the MAT program.
