Pre-Physical Therapy

Departmental Website


Physical therapists work with patients to regain mobility after accidents or injury. They work with people of all ages, in schools, nursing homes, hospitals. Like other health professions, the working entry-level degree is a master's degree. If a student wishes to pursue a graduate program in physical therapy, then attending Eastern for an undergraduate degree provides an excellent preparation.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences includes most of the physical therapy prerequisites, but other academic majors are also acceptable. The Graduate Record Exam is required for entry into graduate programs. It is important to understand that physical therapy is a competitive field: good grades, a strong GRE score, and volunteer experiences are a must!
