This concentration in the Department of Kinesiology allows students upon graduation to enter professional schools, which are often master's or doctoral degree programs. The requirements of schools offering programs in Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Chiropractic Medicine and Occupational Therapy vary considerably. It is best to contact schools that you are interested in applying to and checks with them regarding their entry requirements and pre-requisites. Consult with your advisor to develop a plan of course work based upon your career objectives and goals. Students are strongly encouraged to contact the schools they intend on applying to and obtain the current pre-requisites for admission as early as possible (preferably by the end of their sophomore year). Most schools require course work in chemistry, math, physics, English/literature/composition, human physiology, psychology, biology/zoology, statistics and social sciences.
