Athletic Training: Program Information


Marywood University offers two options to earn a Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree.  1- A 5-year BS/MS program where students complete a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science first, then finish with the MSAT. 2- Students who have completed a bachelor's degree can apply to the 2-year MSAT program.

The admissions cycle for our 2-year MSAT program (Summer 2020 start) has begun! Applications will only be accepted through ATCAS. Review of applications starts 1/1/20. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis ans continue until the cohort is full. Review of applications ends 5/1/20.

With a lower than average cost of living and 39.5 credits, Marywood's MSAT program is a cost effective option for any student.

Students interested in the 5-year BS/MS program must apply to Marywood for freshman admission. Students interested in the 2-year MSAT program must apply through the Athletic Training Centralized Application System (ATCAS) starting in the July 2019. The first cohort of 2-year MSAT students will begin class in June 2020.

All requests for transfer/change of major into the 5-year BS/MS program will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Athletic Training Program Director. Successful completion of prerequisite coursework by students not accepted into the BS/MS track as freshmen does not guarantee acceptance into the MSAT.

Information regarding the 5-year BS/MS and 2-year MSAT programs, including admissions requirements, program mission, goals, and objectives, curriculum and course descriptions, program retention requirement, and additional program costs can be found under the MS in Athletic Training tab.
