The School of Health and Human Performance offers a CAATE accredited master of science degree in athletic training. The athletic training master’s degree will be offered through a 3 + 2 program that will award the student a bachelor of science (in sports science) degree and a master of science in Athletic Training when completed. The athletic training master's degree is also offered as a "stand-alone" program that is available for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree in a related field.
The NMU exercise science master's degree is intended for students with undergraduate backgrounds in athletic training, biological sciences, dietetics, health, nursing, physical education, physiology, physical therapy and sport/exercise science.
