Program Overview

The 43 credit Master’s in Athletic Training Program can be completed in 2 years. This program is aligned with the competencies and proficiencies established by National Athletic Trainers’ Association and Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. The didactic portion of the program is taught by experienced faculty in hybrid format, utilizing online and face to face instruction in our new state of the art Health Science Center. The Neumann Athletic Training Program offers a low student to faculty ratio that provides individualized learning in both the classroom and clinical settings. There are 4 clinical (practicum) experiences that enhance classroom content providing opportunity for applied learning under the supervision of a certified athletic trainer. Students will also participate in at least one “immersive clinical experience” during the last year in the Program. Neumann’s location in the greater Philadelphia region complements our offering of a wide variety of unique clinical opportunities. This allows students exposure to both traditional (to include professional sports), as well as non-traditional clinical athletic training experiences. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in sports medicine research under the guidance of our faculty.

Neumann University’s Franciscan values and traditions are embedded into all aspects of our Entry-Level Program. The holistic approach to exposing students to not only academic excellence but social responsibility, personal accountability, and service to the community. Lastly, students are exposed and encouraged to participate alongside faculty in a variety of professional development opportunities.
