Messiah University and University of Maryland Eastern Shore enter enrollment agreement for Messiah’s MSAT program
Messiah University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Department of Kinesiology are excited to announce a bachelor’s + 2 MSAT enrollment partnership. The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) has 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 UMES 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.
“I am thrilled that we are establishing this agreement with UMES, a nationally ranked, doctoral-granting HBCU with an excellent kinesiology program and a commitment to health professions,” said Dr. Rob Pepper, associate provost for graduate and professional studies and university partnerships at Messiah. “UMES has grown in its academic offerings, reputation and research efforts, and we are blessed to establish this relationship with a growing institution at this pivotal time in its storied history.”
