Program Overview

Pacific's Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) is a full-time cohort (team) model graduate program located in Stockton that consist of 60 units taught over two years, beginning with a 10 week summer session and pre-season internship the second summer. You will learn through extensive hands-on experiences with athletes, and excellent classroom and laboratory instruction from experienced caring faculty. The program will prepare you to become a highly qualified health care professional who collaborates with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation for athletic and patients, and pass the national certification examination. Pacific Athletic Training alumni are currently working for the National Football League (NFL), Major League Baseball (MLB), National Basketball Association (NBA), Oregon State University, Washington State University, and various other colleges.


University of the Pacific is seeking accreditation for our new Masters of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program, but is not currently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The institution will submit a Self-Study to begin the accreditation process by July 1, 2019, with an expected accreditation Site-Visit date in spring 2020. Once the MSAT program achieves "Active - in good standing" accreditation with CAATE, students that graduate after the Site-Visit will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination to become a Certified Athletic Trainer.
