Pre-Physical Therapy Professional Track Courses

The Pre-Physical Therapy Professional Track can be associated with any major offered at Trine University, though majors in the Science Department provide the clearest path to successful entry into a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree program. In conjunction with, or in addition to, the curricular requirements of the major, the Pre-Physical Therapy Professional Track requires additional 41 credit hours coursework in the following areas:

Biological Sciences (excluding botany and zoology) - 8 credit hours
BIO 384/384L Human Anatomy  and Physiology I and Laboratory
BIO 394/394L Human Anatomy and Physiology II and Laboratory
CH 104 General Chemistry I
CH 114 General Chemistry II
ENG 453 Advanced Composition
MA 253 Statistics
PH 154 College Physics I
  and PH 164 College Physics II
or PH 224 University Physics I
  and PH 234 University Physics II
Psychology elective - 3 credit hours

Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better to stay in the track. They are evaluated final year via benchmark interviews that address the following characteristics of a successful physical therapy program applicant: development of personal and professional qualities; physical therapy or graduate school applications; and community service, clinical observation and leadership experiences.

Advanced placement (AP) credits earned may not be used to fulfill prerequisite requirements for physical therapy school.
