Special Undergraduate Academic and Co-Curricular Programs

The primary focus of Rockhurst University’s Physical Therapy Education program is on the preparation of students to provide prevention, education, examination, and intervention services to persons whose abilities are threatened or impaired by developmental deficits, aging, physical illness or injury. The Doctor of Physical Therapy degree is designed for the person with an undergraduate degree in a field other than physical therapy, so any undergraduate major offered by Rockhurst University, in addition to completion of the required pre-requisites, prepares the interested student for application to the Physical Therapy Program.

Students interested in pursuing studies in Physical Therapy are encouraged to contact the chair of the department early in their undergraduate studies. Please refer to the graduate section of the catalog for more information on the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
