WSU Athletic Training

The Athletic Training major is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). In addition to the academic coursework requirements, students must complete:

  • Clinical education experiences
  • Fieldwork experiences through required clinical coursework

Students who complete the clinical education and academic requirements are eligible for national certification through the Board of Certification (BOC).

New Program Starting Fall of 2017!

The Athletic Training major is currently transitioning from a nationally accredited undergraduate program by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) to an entry level Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program (PDF). Freshman students interested in this professional program can enter Winona State University as freshman in the fall of 2017 and complete both a bachelor’s degree in Movement Science and a master’s degree in Athletic Training in five years.

Learn more about the new MSAT program (PDF) including pre-requisite courses, admission information and program objectives. You may also contact Dr. Brian Zeller, Director of the Athletic Training Program at 507-457-5575 or BZeller@winona.edu for more information or to answer any questions.

Please note: Fall 2016 will be the final entering class of freshmen who will be eligible for admission into the Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training. The final admission process into the Bachelor of Science-Athletic Training degree program will occur during the Fall 2017 semester.
