UNE is excited to announce the transition of the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree to a Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) in the Fall of 2017. The five-year graduate program will be offered in a 3+2 format and build upon UNE’s strength in delivering the highest quality health professions programs. The first of its kind in the state of Maine, our MSAT is designed to prepare students for the rapidly growing field of athletic training.

You will benefit from state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories, world-class instructors, and a rigorous, forward-thinking curriculum. Wide-ranging clinical opportunities in areas such as high school/college athletics, outpatient orthopaedics, professional sports, 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 contact Prof. Wayne R. Lamarre at

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.
