Master of Athletic Training (MAT)

Defiance College is currently seeking accreditation for their new Masters in Athletic Training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). This program is also not accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the CAATE accreditation process on July 1, 2020, and the HLC. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited. Students that graduate from the program prior to accreditation WILL NOT be eligible to sit for the credentialing examination for athletic trainers and will not be eligible for licensure in most states.
