Pre-Physical Therapy Concentration in Exercise Science

The pre-physical therapy concentration in exercise science is designed to prepare students for entrance into a school of physical therapy. Physical therapy programs accept a limited number of students and are highly competitive – the student is encouraged to maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better while in this concentration. The Pre-PT concentration requires students to complete 120 credit hours: 48 credits hours in General Education, 39 credit hours of core courses in the exercise science curriculum, 6 credit hours of internship at a physical therapy clinic, 21 credit hours of other related coursework and 6 credit hours under advisement.
