The Commission for Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) has completed its review of the new Loras College Graduate Athletic Training program and was found to be fully compliant with all graduate standards. Additionally, the program is in good standing with the CAATE regarding accreditation status.
Loras’ Master of Athletic Training (MAT) program will be the first in the tri-state area with a launch date of May 2019, and the only private, liberal arts institution in the state of Iowa to offer the degree program.
Loras will offer the MAT degree in a unique 3+2 format for students, which will allow students to complete both a B.S. degree in kinesiology and a MAT degree in five years. Those students who are already enrolled or possess an undergraduate degree can apply directly to the two-year graduate program.
