Summary of This Program

The MS in Athletic Training at Neumann University

Certified athletic trainers are highly-qualified, skilled health care professionals that work in collaboration with physicians. The practice of athletic training encompasses preventing, examining, diagnosing, treating, and rehabilitating emergent, acute, or chronic injuries and medical conditions in the physically active population.
 
The 43-credit MS in Athletic Training can be completed in two 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. 
 
Neumann’s master’s degree in athletic training offers a low student-to-faculty ratio that provides individualized learning in both the classroom and clinical settings. There are four 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.
