Advisor — Dr. Hamill, Zoology
The pre-physical therapy sequence includes those courses typically required for admission to master’s or doctoral programs in physical therapy. However, this sequence does not constitute a major. A student must meet the requirements of an established major. While any major is acceptable, Ohio Wesleyan students most commonly prepare for graduate school in physical therapy by completing a major in Zoology, Psychology, or Health and Human Kinetics (Sports Science Concentration).
Students interested in physical therapy should consult with the pre-physical therapy advisor early in their college careers for information on ways to become a physical therapist and for the entrance requirements of specific professional schools. Students also must have recent experience in observing, or preferably assisting, a registered physical therapist.
