Academic Facilities

The Master of Athletic Training (MATR) program is housed in the Allied Health Suite, which is located in the Student Life Building (SLB) on the northeastern part of campus. In addition to the MATR program, the suite also houses the BS in Exercise Science Program’s two classrooms and the Exercise Science Laboratory.
