Pre-physical Therapy Program and Concentration

You have two options if you're looking to study pre-physical therapy. The pre-physical therapy concentration, offered as part of the applied health science major, takes the science and physiology of biology and applies it to the human body and how it reacts to exercise, stress and disease. Alternatively, you also have the option to major in another discipline and work with our pre-health professions advisor to complete the pre-phyiscal therapy program. In the pre-physical therapy concentration and program, you’ll even participate in the unique undergrad experience of dissecting a human cadaver along with taking other hands-on courses that prepare you for graduate school.
