Strength and Conditioning Minor

Add a strength and conditioning minor to your career repertoire. 
The connection between classroom theory and real-world application.


The mission of the Strength and Conditioning Minor is to give students invaluable hands-on experience to expand their knowledge in the field of athletic performance enhancement.

Students have the rare opportunity to earn college credit for being an intern with NCAA Division 1 athletes and coaches at WSU, in addition to affiliated professionals in the community setting, creating one of the top undergraduate strength and conditioning internships in the country.

The strength and conditioning minor program at WSU has produced many quality and highly sought after Strength and Conditioning professionals and has been able to help place former students in a wide variety of settings, including the NFL, NBA and MLB, as well as many in collegiate and high school athletic programs across the country. In addition, this experience enhances non-traditional career routes. Some of the outside fields our students utilize their knowledge include:

Athletic training, Physical therapy, Personal training, Sport coaching, Physical education, Chiropractic
Tactical (military, emergency personnel) training, Occupational therapy
