The purpose of the exercise science major is to prepare students for an entry-level doctoral degree program in physical therapy. An interdisciplinary approach is applied to this major, including classes in psychology, biology, physics, chemistry, athletic training, and exercise science. The courses contained within the major meet or exceed the prerequisites for the majority of physical therapy schools. Students are encouraged to volunteer service in all aspects of physical therapy prior to and during their undergraduate studies. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for admission to the program.
