Pre-physical therapy is an undergraduate program for students who plan to pursue a career in physical therapy (PT). This is usually not a major; students on the pre-physical therapy track complete a series of courses as a concentration within another major, such as biology, health science, or physical education. Coursework includes physiology, anatomy, biology, chemistry, and statistics. The goal of a pre-physical therapy program is to prepare you to enter a doctoral program in physical therapy, which takes two to three additional years. Some universities offer six-year combined undergraduate-graduate programs that lead to a master’s degree (MPT) or doctorate (DPT) in physical therapy.
