Physical therapy offers a challenging people-oriented profession that combines a wide range of social, educational and technical skills. Training in physical therapy is offered through graduate programs at universities all across the country. Admission to these masters (typically 2 year) and doctoral level (typically 3 year) programs is competitive and is based on a solid undergraduate preparation, good GRE scores and experience in physical therapy settings. Physical therapy programs recommend an undergraduate curriculum with a strong background in the liberal arts, extensive general education coursework and science coursework that is foundational for specific training in physical therapy. The Health Professions concentration of the Biology  major is highly recommended for those interesting in pursuing careers in physical therapy. For more information see the description of the Biology  section and the requirements for the health professions concentration .
