Pre-Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists use massage, heat treatment, and prescribed exercise rather than drugs or surgery to treat clients. A four-year bachelor’s degree in biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, chemistry, or physics prepares students for admission to most physical therapy graduate programs in the United States. Physical therapy schools that Westminster students have attended beyond Duquesne include Gannon University, University of Pittsburgh, and Wheeling Jesuit University.
