Master of Athletic Training
The OSU Master of Athletic Training Program is a professional program that prepares you to become a licensed and certified athletic trainer.
The program is 2 years in length and begins the summer you are admitted to the program and continues until graduation in June of the end of your 2nd year. OSU utilizes the quarter system with summer, fall, winter, and spring terms (see the OSU academic calendar). To allow students the opportunity to participate in clinical education opportunities during breaks, the program uses the non-traditional course calendar.
The program continues the long-standing use of clinical education experiences throughout the program.
Additionally, you complete and defend a culminating project to graduate. You will work individually with a faculty member to develop the project and to establish a committee of other experts (e.g., faculty, preceptors) who will evaluate the culminating project.
See program Mission, goals and objectives.
Athletic Training Graduate Courses (98 credits)
You can also view the degree requirements in the OSU Academic Catalog.
Students will proceed through the courses as a cohort. Matriculation will be dependent upon successful completion of required coursework (including clinical education components) and the successful completion and defense of a culminating project.
The OSU Graduate School requires the following to remain in good academic standing:
“A grade-point average of 3.00 (a B average) for 1) all courses taken as a degree-seeking graduate student, and 2) courses included in the graduate degree or graduate certificate program of study. Grades below C (2.00) cannot be used on a graduate program of study. A grade-point average of 3.00 is required before the final oral or written exam may be undertaken.”
The OSU Graduate School requires graduate students to register for a minimum of three credits each term (not including summer) unless the student has been approved for a leave of absence.
If you are considering a leave of absence because you are unable to actively pursue your degree should review the OSU Graduate School policies and procedures and consult with the AT Program Director.
MATRN students follow the Oregon State University Student Code of Conduct (pdf). The Student Conduct Code establishes community standards and procedures necessary to maintain and protect an environment conducive to learning, in keeping with the educational objectives of Oregon State University.
If you have an issue related to your graduate education, you may initiate the grievance procedures through the OSU Graduate School. More information at Grievance Procedures for Graduate Students.
