Pre-Physical Therapy Advisor: Thomas Thieman
Program Options: B.A., B.S.
St. Kate’s offers the opportunity to apply your liberal arts education in the field of physical therapy through a unique 3+3 dual-degree program in Applied Science in Psychology/Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT). The dual degree program allows you to complete your bachelor’s degree while pursuing the DPT degree.
As an applied science in psychology major, you will complete the psychology pre-physical therapy sequence of courses and supporting work for the DPT program. This includes courses in biology, anatomy, physiology, chemistry, physics, psychology, statistics and mathematics, while providing a special emphasis in psychology.
The applied science in psychology major requires general courses in psychology and provides the background for understanding the psychological responses to injury, surgery and the rehabilitation process. In addition to DPT prerequisite courses, you will take classes in areas such as socialization processes, learning principles and applications, memory and cognition, abnormal and developmental psychology. In addition to preparing you for graduate work in physical therapy, the psychology major prepares you for graduate work in sports, experimental, clinical or counseling psychology.
To enroll in this program, you apply to the DPT program during your junior year. If you are admitted to the DPT program, you receive a B.A. or B.S. in applied science in psychology upon completion of the first year of the DPT program. The curriculum for the applied science in psychology major is listed in the Pre-Professional Programs (Pre-Physical Therapy) section of this catalog.
