Bachelor of Science in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy

For individuals wanting to pursue a career as a physical therapist, Grand Canyon University offers a Bachelor of Science in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy as the first step on the path to a career in this field. This program includes specialized coursework focused on preparing students for success in their graduate studies to earn a Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) or Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree.

Graduates of the pre-physical therapy bachelors degree will acquire foundational knowledge in biological sciences, exercise science, social sciences and health care issues. Since physical therapists work closely with physical therapy assistants, physicians, other health care professionals and patients, interpersonal communication skills are paramount. These skills as well as the psychological, spiritual, and physical components of health, wellness and therapeutic intervention will be explored. One of the advantages of Grand Canyon Universitys pre-physical therapy program is that students have the opportunity to work on cadavers in our state-of-the-art lab.
