Starting July 2020, Immaculata University is offering a two-year, 60-credit Master of Athletic Training. With this professional program, students can utilize evidence-based practices to prevent, diagnose, and treat various conditions in physically active individuals. Students attend full-time and have a variety of flexible course formats including online and hybrid.
This program expands on the knowledge gained in an undergraduate program through coursework in emergency medical care, evaluation and rehabilitation techniques and other cutting-edge areas of the athletic training profession.
To help gain real-world clinical experience, students are assigned to six clinical education experiences in various high schools, colleges, and medical facilities that expose them to the vast array of populations and conditions that athletic trainers work with on a daily basis. Immaculata’s current clinical education partners include Downingtown, Great Valley, Phoenixville, and Spring-Ford high schools, Swarthmore College, Widener University, YSC Academy, Kinetic Physical Therapy, Penn Medicine, and Immaculata University. During the final year of study, students participate in an immersive clinical setting on a full-time basis, which prepares them to take the Board of Certification exam during their final spring semester.
“With the high employment projections for athletic trainers, Immaculata’s new Master of Athletic Training will be poised to fill the demand. The program’s immersive experiences and specialty courses will prepare students to work in a variety of settings including the community, high school, collegiate or professional level,” states Athletic Training Program Director Kelly A. Stalker, Ed.D., LAT, ATC.
