Pre-Athletic Training

Athletic trainers work with patients of all ages and backgrounds, helping them return to or maintain a physically active lifestyle in settings such as the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball Association (NBA), Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), Major League Baseball and other professional, collegiate, high school and clinical settings.

With Carroll University’s Pre-Athletic Training program, you can gain your undergraduate degree (in one of ten majors) and a graduate degree in athletic training in just five years.

About Pre-Athletic Training

If you are a current university undergraduate or a high school student preparing to enter university, Carroll University’s Pre-Athletic Training Program positions you to earn a Master of Science of Athletic Training degree in as few as five years. Our flexible program allows you to select from ten different undergraduate majors.

Carroll has received Higher Learning Commission approval to offer the Master of Science of Athletic Training and is currently seeking the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) for this change in degree.

Approved Majors for MSAT 3+2 Completion

Current students who are completing their degree in other majors are welcome to apply as a 4+2, provided the prerequisite courses have been completed.

Beyond courses in your field of study, a benefit to attending Carroll is participating in our required cross cultural experience component. These experiences allow you to learn about different cultures and give you the opportunity to travel and interact with diverse groups locally, nationally or internationally. Students majoring in the health sciences can use their cross-cultural experience to gain additional knowledge in healthcare. Groups travel on medical missions around the globe to provide care and interact with underserved populations in countries like Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico and Nicaragua. These unique immersive experiences will make you a desirable applicant for graduate programs or professional careers.
