Foundational education to pursue graduate physical therapy training

Pre-Physical Therapy

Pre-health areas are not majors, so you won't receive a degree in pre-physical therapy. You can choose any USD major with required prerequisite coursework in preparation for applying to a graduate physical therapy program. Most programs require a bachelors degree, preferred GPA and coursework in biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, psychology, anatomy and physiology. USD and other graduate programs consider academic performance, character, motivation, professionalism and knowledge of the profession for entry into the program.
