Athletic Training at Winona State
Winona State University has a long-standing tradition of graduates who become certified athletic trainers and make positive contributions to the allied health profession of athletic training.
Some WSU graduates have secured positions with professional, semi-professional and Olympic teams. Others have been hired as:
- university head athletic trainers
- clinic directors
- physician clinics
- industrial/corporate athletic trainers
- high school athletic trainers
The WSU Athletic Training program provides students with the knowledge and skills required to become highly competent, multi-skilled healthcare professionals.
Students complete a rigorous academic program both in the classroom and in the clinical setting, using the most advanced technology and evidence-based research.
The Athletic Training program has transitioned to an entry level Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) (PDF) program.
Freshmen students interested in this professional program can complete both a bachelor’s degree in Movement Science and a master’s degree in Athletic Training in only five years.
At this time, the WSU Athletic Training Program is not accepting new applications into the undergraduate program.
Students who have completed a bachelor's degree can apply for the two-year professional MSAT program to become an athletic trainer.
