Master of Athletic Training Program

The athletic training graduate program in the School of Allied Health at OSU Center for Health Sciences prepares individuals to become competent and independent clinicians who will enhance the quality of patient health care and advance the profession of athletic training through practice and research.

More than 70 percent of practicing athletic trainers hold a master’s degree and the number of athletic training jobs is predicted to increase by 30 percent by 2020.

Undergraduate students interested in athletic training are encouraged to enroll in health education and promotion (exercise and health) at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater and OSU-Tulsa or in any science-based undergraduate major.
