Physical Therapy is the practice of physical rehabilitation. Rehab is for patients recovering from injuries, intensive surgeries or those with physical conditions.
The Pre-Physical Therapy program is not a specific major, rather it combines required prerequisites with the students' declared major. These prerequisites ensure that students are prepared for professional Physical Therapy school. Though Physical Therapy schools do not require a specific bachelor degree, the Bachelor of Arts program in biology accommodates almost all physical therapy prerequisite courses. Students will work with their advisor to combine required PT school prerequisites with their major.
The Pre-Physical Therapy program offers several services in order to prepare students for the often rigorous journey in becoming a physical therapist, including advising, the opportunity to attend professional workshops, research opportunities and student organizations.
