Pre-Physical Therapy and Undergraduate Programs available in Denton
TWU offers a number of undergraduate degrees that are well-suited toward pre-physical therapy including kinesiology/exercise science, biology, psychology, family science and child development that will start you on the right track. After taking courses such as exercise testing and physiology, advanced exercise physiology, neuroanatomy and physiology, biomechanics, and sports and fitness management, you will participate in internships focused on rehabilitation and fitness. (These degrees are not a mandatory requirement for entrance into the School of Physical Therapy and other undergraduate degrees are accepted.)
