Advising Area

The pre-physical therapy advising track at Stevenson allows students to learn comprehensive rehabilitation techniques in an effort to provide excellent care to those recovering. Upon completion, students will be able to make informed decisions about what specific area of the body they want to focus on as they apply to graduate school and begin their careers as physical therapists.

Please note: Students identifying a pre-physical therapy advising track will also declare an academic major. Students do not earn a “Pre-physical therapy” degree. Students are encouraged to investigate the many majors that Stevenson has to offer across our six degree granting schools. Students unsure of their academic major should consult with a Deciding advisor in the Office of Student Success or utilize career exploration resources available through Career Services. 

Stevenson is proud of its recent graduates and what they have accomplished. Their success is reflected in the places where they have progressed to study physical therapy, such as those listed below:
