The athletic training degree at Oregon State University is a master’s level degree. From 1974 to 2017 OSU had an accredited undergraduate athletic training program. Starting in the summer of 2016, the first cohort of students started in the new professional master’s program in athletic training. The new master’s program was granted accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) in the summer of 2017.


Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2019.

Applications will continue to be accepted until the cohort is full or April 1, 2019, whichever comes first.

Applicants are encouraged to submit their application by January 15, 2019 as there are a limited number of spots available in each cohort.

Clinical Education Experiences

The Master of Athletic Training degree program (MATRN) continues the long-standing use of practical clinical education experiences. These experiential learning opportunities allow students to develop clinical expertise in the prevention, emergency care, diagnosis, referral, immediate treatment, and therapeutic rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses associated with participation in sport and physical activity.
