B.A. Liberal Arts: Physical Therapy

At Hope the Physical Therapy major prepares students for entry into graduate programs in physical therapy. The program is offered in conjunction with California State University, Fullerton, which is located right across the street from Hope. In this program, students take a blend of coursework from each university, resulting in a broad educational experience. The program also includes a liberal arts curriculum that focuses on oral and written communication, leadership, critical thinking, and Biblical studies.

Because professional schools vary considerably on prerequisite coursework, some physical therapy graduate school preparation courses in the major can be modified so that students may pursue a more targeted preparation and better position themselves to apply to the school(s) of their choice.

The B.A. in Liberal Arts: Physical Therapy program is 140-143 units.
