Master of Athletic Training

About the Master of Athletic Training Degree (starting July 2022)

Cedarville University has offered a fully accredited B.A. in Athletic Training since 1994. The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) has now mandated that all professional athletic training programs in the U.S. transition to an entry-level master's by 2025.

Cedarville University is actively pursuing this transition and will begin offering a Master of Athletic Training degree starting July 2022. Cedarville University will pursue a degree level change in its current athletic training program accreditation through CAATE prior to the launch of the Master of Athletic Training.

Cedarville University also plans to offer a B.S. in sport medicine/M.A.T. accelerated completion option, allowing you to complete both degrees in just five years.

As an incoming freshman, you can choose to begin Cedarville’s B.S. in sport medicine program and move into the Master of Athletic Training portion of the degree after three years. We have strategically designed the B.S. in sport medicine curriculum so the senior year is taken as part of the first year of the M.A.T. program. When you are admitted into the M.A.T. program, you are able to complete a B.S. in sport medicine, a Bible minor, and a Master of Athletic Training degree in five years.

Biblical — With biblical integration in every course, you will discover how to serve your clients with the mind of Christ.
Accredited — Cedarville’s current Athletic Training program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education ( CAATE).
State-of-the-art facilities — Program utilizes Cedarville’s 3,000-square-foot athletic training facility with a devoted educational laboratory.
Mentoring faculty — Christian faculty members and practicing clinicians will teach, advise, and care about your success.
