Native Rowan Students
The MSAT has a unique curriculum. It is a 5 year Master's Program, in that there will be no Bachelor's degree associated with this program. Students accepted to Rowan University will declare their major within the Pre-Athletic Training (PreAT) curriculum. The PreAT curriculum will be designed to prepare students for the Professional Preparation (Graduate) curriculum over a 3 year sequence of courses. In the spring of the junior year, students will apply to the Professional Preparation component (Please see Admission Requirements below). Once accepted into the Professional Athletic Training Program, students will begin the curriculum in May of their 3rd year and will continue for two calendar years.
The 2 calendar years of graduate classes will be at the undergraduate tuition rate for those students that completed the Rowan University Pre-Athletic Training Curriculum. In the Fall of 2020, the AT Program will begin accepting applications from students that have a bachelor’s degree from other institutions. However, these students will be required to pay graduate tuition rates.
The new MSAT will have 4 total clinical experience classes with two being completely immersive. This means students will spend the majority or all of a semester in the clinical setting without attending face-to-face classes.
The Pre-Athletic Training curriculum is being specifically designed to prepare the student for success within the Professional Athletic Training Program. These Pre-Athletic Training curriculum major courses will introduce foundational knowledge that will be pertinent for the AT Program.
External students will be able to apply to the Athletic Training Program once they have met all prerequisite admission requirements. These requirements can be found at https://academics.rowan.edu/shp/departments/hes/index.html. Students holding a bachelor's degree will not be eligible for the undergraduate tuition rate.
