Graduate Program: Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT)
Asked to describe the University of Lynchburg’s Master of Science in Athletic Training program, Jordan Cannon ’23 MSAT said, “Rigorous, fun, and I don’t want to say unique, but honestly that might be the word for it, so unique.”
Cannon came to Lynchburg from Shorter University in Rome, Georgia, which has about 1,300 students. One reason she chose Lynchburg’s MSAT program was because of the small classes.
“I think the small class sizes and the personal experience make the… program unique,” the Anderson, South Carolina, native said. “Just because you get that one-on-one experience and it’s a lot of close interaction with your professors.”
She described the faculty as “really caring,” adding that they are “very individualized with how they connect with you and they really want to work for your benefit, so they really try and help you in any way possible … they’re extremely caring about each student.”
Cannon, who said she works “best in a small setting,” also chose Lynchburg’s MSAT because it “looked rigorous,” and added that one of the program’s strengths is that the clinical rotations give students experience at various college levels — DI to DIII — and high schools, too.
