Pre-Physical Therapy

Since you're wanting to study physical therapy, it's likely you have varied interests: anatomy, health, patient care, exercise, etc.

This is in your favor because SAU offers several majors that fit well for a pre-PT curriculum, including Exercise Science, Human Performance and Fitness, Biology, Psychology, and several others.

No matter the major, specific prerequisite coursework must be completed prior to applying to the SAU PT program.
