Pre-Physical Therapy Pathway Information

Follow the Pathway Program Directly into the Doctor of Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is one of the most popular fields within the healthcare industry, and Franklin Pierce offers you a long-term plan from your first year on campus. If you do not pursue the Direct Admit (4+2.5) Program, you may choose to explore the Pre-Physical Therapy Pathway, which offers multiple means of progression from an undergraduate degree to the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT). Health Sciences and Biology are commonly selected undergraduate programs of study; however, you may focus in any discipline, so long as the major requirements and course prerequisites have been met.
