WLC students in sport and exercise science lab

体育训练 (3+2 Dual-Degree)

我们的 partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) provides you with an opportunity to obtain both a bachelor's degree in sport and exercise science from WLC and a Master of Science degree in 体育训练 (M.S.A.T.) from UWM in just five years rather than the typical six!

You’ll complete three years of coursework at WLC - or, 如果你愿意, the traditional four years - then transition to UWM for your last two years.

This accelerated program is designed for students who want to pursue a career in athletic training, 允许你 complete your master’s degree in athletic training a year earlier than typical, saving you tuition expenses and 允许你 enter the workforce with an advanced degree and begin earning income sooner.

根据 National Athletic Trainers’ Association, athletic trainers “collaborate with physicians in the prevention, 急救护理, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and 康复 of injuries of illnesses.” If your interests include healthcare, 伤害预防, 康复, 运动, 体育活动, 或健康, a career in athletic training may be a great fit for you!

Students interested in the Christ-centered academic experience that WLC offers can now also achieve their career aspiration through advanced education at UWM. UWM’s MSAT program emphasizes interprofessional communication, a higher degree of autonomy, clinical reasoning skills, and evidence-based practice that allows graduates to actively engage in the rapidly changing science surrounding healthcare practice. The Master of Science in 体育训练 program at UWM is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of 体育训练 Education (CAATE), and students passing the Board of Certification exam become credentialed athletic trainers.

根据 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rise of sports-related activity in older adults has increased the need for athletic trainers. The profession is expected to grow 17% through 2031, much faster than the average. About 2,500 openings for athletic trainers are projected each year, on average, over the decade.

Projections from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development indicate that from 2020-2028, there will be a 10% increase in the number of athletic training jobs in the state of Wisconsin, and a 9% increase in the greater Milwaukee area (Milwaukee, 品尝, Waukesha and Washington counties).

我们的 sport and exercise science majors learn by doing, taking advantage of small, active, and participatory lab experiences. These labs provide hands-on training and experiential learning opportunities with the same equipment used by athletic trainers in the field. 我们的运动 & 运动科学 Lab features gold-standard equipment, including a hydrostatic weighing tank for underwater weighing and body composition measurements, Watt and Monark bikes, 力板, and a force plate treadmill.
