*This is not a baccalaureate degree program; it is, rather, a six-year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT).
The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program comprises three academic years of undergraduate study and three calendar years of professional graduate study. The undergraduate portion of the curriculum is done
as an exercise science major in the Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences. Students who follow the first three years of the exercise science (ES) curriculum will have completed all the prerequisite coursework
for the DPT program.
