Encourage active lifestyles to improve and maintain mobility

As a physical therapist, you will examine patients and develop treatment plans. You will use techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. Our transfer degree is a lower cost route to earning your bachelor’s degree.

From there, you can move closer to your goal of a professional career as a physical therapist. Consult an Academic Success Advisor to ensure the courses in your program fulfill the requirements of your desired college or university.

What can you do with an A.S. in Pre-Physical Therapy?

The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in pre-physical therapy prepares you to transfer and complete a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, exercise science or related fields. This then prepares you to apply for a doctoral program in physical therapy.
