from the University of Montana

The University of Montana’s Athletic Training Program was among the first in the nation and our leadership in the field continues today. As a student in the new Master’s degree program at UM, you’ll:
  • Develop the critical thinking, decision-making and communication skills necessary for success in athletic training, allied health care, and other professions
  • Benefit from a rigorous program that will prepare you to sit for the BOC examination
  • Gain extensive, hands-on experience at various clinical education sites including colleges, high schools, sports and physical therapy clinics
  • Enjoy a low student-to-faculty ratio while learning from a range of allied and medical health care professionals

Option 1: A five-year program in which students earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health and Human Performance and a Master’s Degree in Athletic Training.
Option 2: A two-year master’s program designed for students who already have a baccalaureate degree.

*The program meets the standards established by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The current undergraduate Athletic Training Program is accredited by CAATE; however the Master’s in Athletic Training Program will undergo review in 2014.
