Program

UNE is excited to announce the creation of our Master of Science in Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.) degree. If you are a high school graduate, then you can earn your degree in five years through our innovative 3+2 format. If you already hold a Bachelor of Science degree, then come to UNE and earn your M.S.A.T. in just 24 months. Either way, you’ll benefit from UNE’s strength in delivering the highest quality health profession programs. 

You will study in state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories with world-class instructors following a rigorous, forward-thinking curriculum. Wide-ranging clinical opportunities in areas such as professional sports, high school/college athletics, outpatient orthopedic clinics, industrial and primary care medicine, and graduate research will challenge you to think critically and practice as part of an interdisciplinary team.

For more information about the new program, please email Wayne R. Lamarre, program director, 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.
