    Manchester offers a two-year Master of Athletic Training degree (MAT), but with our 3+2 program, you can come in as a first-year undergraduate student and graduate just five years later with both a bachelor’s degree and an MAT! Manchester MAT majors get a variety of clinical experiences along with great internships, which results in great jobs. Employers love how prepared Manchester graduates are.
