Messiah University and Cairn University enter enrollment agreement for Messiah’s MSAT program
Messiah and Cairn universities are excited to announce a bachelor’s + 2 MSAT enrollment partnership. Recently, the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) mandated that an individual must have a Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) from an accredited program to take the Board of Certification Examination, which is required to practice.
This program will allow Cairn University students who complete a bachelor’s degree to move into Messiah’s MSAT program. Students may pursue any undergraduate degree as long as they successfully complete Messiah University MSAT prerequisites.
“We are pleased to establish this enrollment agreement with Cairn University,” said Dr. Rob Pepper, associate provost for graduate and professional studies and university partnerships. “This agreement establishes a formal pathway for Cairn University undergraduate students who want to pursue athletic training at the graduate level at a nationally ranked, accredited private Christian university.”
