Through an intensive three year course of study, students are exposed to basic sciences, evaluative and treatment theories, intervention techniques, professional issues analysis, and skills development to allow autonomous practice.
The Physical Therapy Department is part of the College of Human Science and Services (CHSS). CHSS also offers programs of study in kinesiology, communicative disorders, education, human development & family studies, and textile marketing and design.
