    The athletic training curriculum provides career opportunities in high schools, colleges, professional sports programs, and other athletic health care agencies such as corporate health programs, sports medicine, and athletic training facilities. Contact your advisor at Williston State College to determine curriculum for the first two years. 

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Athletic Training.
