News outlets share release on new MSAT program

The Bangor Daily News and Penobscot Bay Pilot republished the University of Maine’s news release about the College of Education and Human Development offering a new Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree. Students who complete the new master’s program will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification for Athletic Trainers (BOC) national credentialing exam. “We’re excited to transition our program to the graduate level, so we can continue to prepare athletic training students to become certified professionals. As the state’s only NCAA Division I institution, with abundant access to fitness and recreation opportunities in our backyard, UMaine is one of the best environments imaginable to get real-world, hands-on experience in the field,” said Robert Lehnhard, director of the School of Kinesiology, Physical Education and Athletic Training at the College of Education and Human Development.
