Fast Facts: Athletic Training (M.S. in 5 option)
Students may choose from two admission options:
The Athletic Training Strategic Alliance has agreed to a new set of standards that requires aspiring athletic trainers to get their master's degree before they enter the profession.
Even though the change won't take effect until the year 2022, we're already ahead of the curve. We have the only master's-level athletic training program in the state of Minnesota. Our M.S. in Five program will put you ahead of athletic training graduates entering the job market with a bachelor's degree now or a master's degree later.
For guidance on securing internships, contact the department chair. St. Scholastica students have interned at a variety of sites, including ESPN Wide World of Sports, Minnesota Twins minor league complex, J Robinson Intensive Wrestling Camps, Minnesota Golden Gophers football, Fairview Hospital, collegiate athletic programs and fitness centers.
The job outlook for Athletic Training graduates is very positive. Upon graduating, students have secured positions within healthcare facilities, university settings, and fitness and rehabilitation centers. Pairing Athletic Training with courses in the School of Business and Technology can help prepare students aspiring to open their own practice.
Boost your brain power and give yourself a competitive edge in our global economy by pairing your major with a language. St. Scholastica offers programs and courses in American Sign Language, French, German, Latin, Ojibwe, Russian and Spanish.
"The athletic training degree I received from CSS prepared me for a great career. I’m working at the Division I level and recently helped paralympic throwers at the Olympic Training Center. One of the athletes not only let me hold her bronze medal from London, but insisted I wear it."
–Callie Bartel, ’11
