The Department of Exercise Sciences values the human being as sacred and seeks to strengthen both body and spirit by attaining, advancing, and disseminating knowledge in the disciplines of human exercise and performance, injury and rehabilitation, and wellness while inviting divine inspiration to guide our efforts.
The MAT program within the Department of Exercise Sciences is designed to provide an atmosphere where increased knowledge and practice prepare students to become leaders in the athletic training profession, and in their families, communities, and the world. Instruction for the MAT takes the form of lectures and laboratory courses, seminars, examinations, independent study, and clinical education assignments. In addition to working with athletic training faculty, MAT students will receive assignments to work with preceptors at a variety of clinical experiences, including an eight-week immersive internship.
Brigham Young University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) located at 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3184. The program will have its next comprehensive review during the 2022–2023 academic year.
