Midland University - Fremont, Ne

Master of Athletic Training

At Midland University we believe sports help students learn lasting life lessons and build character. With 32 varsity sports in the NAIA, Midland is home to the largest athletic department in Nebraska and over 800 student athletes. Our athletic training students will have hands-on training in a variety of team and individual sports, allowing diverse and comprehensive educational and clinical experiences.

With a smaller school experience, Master of Athletic Training students will have access to various interprofessional opportunities with our growing Human Performance and Nursing programs. Midland’s recently opened Simulation Lab allows students hands-on experience with mannequins exhibiting a variety of conditions, and the renovated dedicated Athletic Training space provides a home for athletic training development.

Midland 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 (2023-2024) academic year.
