Pre-physical Therapy Emphasis (B.S.)

If you’re majoring in health sciences, you have the choice of two emphases: pre-physical therapy or health sciences general. The pre-physical therapy emphasis will prepare you for a variety of entry-level health care jobs and to pursue your D.P.T. in a professional physical therapy program like the one here at NIU. You’ll take a variety of courses in science, math, rehabilitation services and public health to best prepare you for this diverse field.
