*located on the Armstrong campus

The bachelor’s degree program of study combines the strong science curriculum (chemistry, physics, biology, anatomy and physiology) that is needed for success in the health professions, with a curriculum founded in the behavioral sciences (general and abnormal psychology; health and human development). The student’s knowledge of exercise and exercise principles is developed in a three-course sequence that focuses on the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and cardiovascular-pulmonary bases for exercise. Majors may customize their programs by selecting as many as six elective courses from the biological, behavioral and health sciences.

Students wishing to pursue this major should be aware that overall GPA and science GPAs of 3.0 are required for consideration for most Doctor of Physical Therapy programs.  For progression requirements, please refer to the Georgia Southern University Undergraduate Catalog.
