Maryville’s Pre-Physical Therapy program serves students from any science major who are interested in pursuing a career as a physical therapist.

The program ensures that students have access to the courses they need to meet their pre-professional requirements as well as providing support and guidance along the way. We help our students develop the credentials that physical therapy schools are looking for including demonstration of academic excellence in all course work, particularly in biology, exercise science, chemistry and physics and affirmation of a long-term, growing commitment to serving others.
