Certified athletic trainers are medical experts in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. The WSU Master of Science in Athletic Training degree is designed to enable students with a bachelor's degree in an area other than athletic training to obtain eligibility for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. Athletic Trainers work in universities, high schools, sports medicine clinics, professional sports, the military, factories, and hospitals.
What will I learn in the program?
You will take athletic training classes in topics like emergency care, orthopedic assessment, therapeutic modalities, therapeutic rehabilitation, general medical conditions and athletic training management. Study in a state-of-the-art, fully equipped athletic training lab and participate in clinical rotations in a wide variety of settings on and off campus.
