Program

The current Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree will become a Master of Science in Athletic Training beginning the fall semester of 2017. This transition is in direct response to a mandate from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and its strategic partners in May 2015 that the professional degree for athletic training will be established at the master’s level. The program will be offered in a five-year, 3+2 format and build upon UNE’s strength in delivering the highest quality graduate health professions programs.

For more information about the proposed curriculum, please contact Prof. Wayne R. Lamarre at wlamarre@une.edu.


As an Athletic Training major, you learn every aspect of improving individual and team wellness. The curriculum combines the study of anatomy and other health-related sciences with the art of preventing, managing, and rehabilitating athletic and orthopedic injuries.

You gain a thorough understanding of the effects of sport and sport-related injuries on the individual performer through a series of classroom and clinical experiences. You learn to enhance the wellness of active healthy people as well as injured ones. You leave our program with all of the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to be an athletic trainer.

Health Sciences on the Coast of Maine

As a student you'll love the atmosphere, coastal views and recreational opportunities of UNE's Biddeford Campus, where the Athletic Training program is located. You'll also like the opportunities provided by the University's full complement of programs. UNE offers degree programs in health sciences, natural sciences, human services, management, education and the liberal arts, and includes Maine's only medical school, the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, which emphasizes the education of primary care physicians. This relationship provides students with many unique opportunities, not the least of which is a full semester of Human Gross Anatomy in a state-of-the-art laboratory.
