Most schools of physical therapy require 60 to 70 hours of selected coursework in a pre-physical therapy program. Students who plan to enter the program in physical therapy should consult the catalog of the school they plan to attend to be certain they fulfill specific requirements.
The suggested pre-physical therapy curriculum at MSU will meet the requirements at most physical therapy schools. To assure proper course selection and to meet all admission requirements, students must work closely with their faculty advisor.
Pre-physical therapy students generally follow the curriculum designed for the biology major. However, certain complementary and specific general education courses are recommended.
Academic handbook and suggested curriculum are available from the pre-physical therapy advisor.
