Masters of Athletic Training

Masters of Athletic Training

Program Overview

The athletic training program (ATP) leads to a Master of Athletic Training (MAT) degree. The MAT program is a professional athletic training program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Students graduating from the ATP are eligible to sit for the Board of Certification exam and become a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC). Students enrolled in the ATP will gain first hand learning experiences with university sponsored athletic teams as well as other off-campus clinical sites.

Students have two avenues in which to pursue the MAT degree:
1. Undergraduate students at Baylor University can enroll in a joint degree program that will link the Health Science Studies (Pre-AT Track) and MAT degree programs so that students can receive two degree in five years.

2. Students who received a bachelor's degree from another institution will be able to apply to the MAT program as a traditional graduate student if they have completed the necessary prerequisite coursework.

All students who are accepted and enroll in the program will receive a 40% tuition remission in the first year that will be increased to at least 45% in the second year of the program. The approximate start date for the 2020-2021 class will be June 17, 2020. The application deadline for the 2020-2021 class is April 3, 2020. The MAT program is reviewing applications on a rolling basis until the deadline. Students will not have to submit a GRE score to apply. Follow this link to start your application:
