Athletic Training

About Athletic Training 

Winthrop University offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training. The Winthrop University Athletic Training Education Program (WU-ATEP) is designed to provide the athletic training student with the didactic and clinical experiences necessary to become a certified athletic trainer.

The WU-ATEP is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.  The WU-ATEP received initial national accreditation in 2004 and was reaccredited in 2010.  The program received the maximum 10 years accreditation and will undergo its next comprehensive review in the 2019-20 academic year.

The WU-ATEP is divided into two stages:

Preparation Stage

The student selects Athletic Training as his/her major and enrolls in general education and introductory course work. The Preparation Stage allows the student to explore the athletic training field to ensure that he/she wants to pursue the field.

Clinical Stage

Formal admission into the Clinical Stage is required. The student typically applies for formal admission during the fall semester of the sophomore year. If a student is not admitted into the Clinical Stage he/she will select a different major.
