Professional Master of Science in Athletic Training Program

Indiana State University is excited to announce the introduction of the new Professional Master of Science in Athletic Training Program! Indiana State University has continued to be a leader in Athletic Training education and has a rich history of challenging the status quo and producing high quality athletic trainers. With an innovative curriculum that integrates advanced skills and clinical decision-making, this new program will equip its graduates to excel in the ever-changing landscape of Athletic Training.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Master of Science in Athletic Training Program at Indiana State University is to effectively prepare evidence-based, patient-centered clinicians that are able to think critically in an ever-changing healthcare landscape.

Students of the program will be well prepared to practice at the top of their license through experiences in interprofessional collaboration, simulation, and application of disablement models in healthcare.

Our program challenges students to develop as advocates for patients and the profession of athletic training. Graduates will be prepared to be ethical, inclusive, and culturally competent clinicians, and also to be productive citizens of the world.

Vision (Execution) Statement

  • 2-year continuous enrollment
  • Blend of didactic and clinical education
  • Clinical immersion experiences at a variety of clinical sites
  • Simulated patient encounters
  • Interprofessional practice


This program will be seeking accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) so that students can be eligible to take the Board of Certification exam at the culmination of the program.


Our program areas of distinction and the proposed curriculum will provide an innovative education in the profession of athletic training.
