Graduate Degree Programs

The Department of Kinesiology and Health Studies offers two distinct, but related  graduate degrees:


Master of Science in Athletic Training (NEW!)

The Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) is a new degree.  In line with other healthcare disciplines, the governing body of athletic training education (CAATE) has mandated a change such that an entry-level master’s degree in athletic training will be required and a timeline has been established for this change. Southeastern has made the decision to offer such a master’s degree and we are in the process of developing that program.  Current plans project an initial cohort of MSAT students in the Summer of 2022 for this 5 semester program.
