WILLISTON, N.D. - As of Fall 2016, the thirteen students enrolled in the WSC Massage Therapy program will work and study in a new location, the Western Star Building (CTE).
The move from the Leonard P. Nelson Health and Wellness Wing home to the Message Therapy program since 2003 was necessary as program enrollment has doubled in the past three years.
The CTE building provides key features to help run a successful program. The new location allows for a larger clinic space, office space, easier parking, a separate lecture room, and for Massage to join WSC's other CTE/trade programs.
"I am very excited to have more room in the CTE building," explained Wendy McGinley, WSC Associate Professor of Massage Therapy. "These new amenities will allow massage to continue to be successful."
WSC offers a Certificate and an AAS degree in Massage Therapy.
"Those pursuing a Certificate will be in the first and only year of studies, while those pursuing the AAS degree will either be in their first year of pre-requisites or their second year of hands-on Massage Therapy courses," explained McGinley.
As of September, the May 2016 graduating class is at a 100% pass rate. On average, each graduating class has had a higher pass rate than the national pass rate.
WSC Massage tentatively begins clinics the week of October 18, 2016 in CTE room 112. Clinics will run until the semester ends in December. Clinic hours are available Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 & 10:30 a.m., and 2:30 & 4 p.m.
The WSC Massage Therapy clinic is open to the community at no charge. Donations are recommended in order to maintain the clinic throughout the year. If you would like to schedule a massage, please call the clinic at 701.774.4297.
