Accelerated B.S. Biology/Doctor of Physical Therapy Program
The accelerated biology /Doctor of physical therapy program allows a limited number of well-qualified students to finish their baccalaureate degree in Biology after completing the first year of the graduate level physical therapist educational program. Foundational science coursework taken during the first year of physical therapy curriculum satisfies the B.S. in Biology degree's elective coursework.
Students complete a minimum of 110 semester credit hours and most requirements for their bachelor's degree over the first three years of their undergraduate program including courses needed for the major and university core requirements. In addition, students complete all courses needed to fulfill the physical therapy program's prerequisites. They may require, because of course offering rotations, that accelerated degree program students attend classes during two summers.
