The MSAT has a unique curriculum. It is a 5 year Master's Program, in that there will be no Bachelor's degree associated with this program. The previous BSAT structure will continue to be a part of the proposed MSAT, in that many of the courses, Professional Phase application process, benchmark exams and clinical experiences will remain a part of the MSAT. A student will start this Master's program beginning their freshman year as part of the Pre-professional Phase and finish in the 5th year as part of the Professional Phase of the Program. The purpose of this model is so that students will pay undergraduate tuition for the 5th year of graduate classes.
