Program Description

Students enrolled in the Physical Therapy program will undergo a rigorous 64 credit hour program that will explore Physical Therapy Assistant basics, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, therapeutic exercise, and other courses in order to provide the future therapist the skills and ability to thrive in this exciting career. The length of this program is approximately 20 months (this will vary if a student transfers in credits).

Each course in the Physical Therapist Assistant major is a prerequisite for the subsequent course and therefore must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher to proceed successfully through the program. Learning will take place in a classroom format so that students experience both online learning to enhance their technology skills and to interact among peers in a team-based learning environment. Each graduating student will receive assistance from the employment services team in identifying job opportunities in this field. This course is intended to prepare students for entry-level positions.
