The physical therapy department recognizes a choice of pathways for freshman acceptance into the sequential degree entry-level physical therapy program.
- B.S. in biology offered through the math and natural sciences department + D.P.T. program
- B.S. in exercise and sports studies offered through the exercise and sports studies department + D.P.T. program
- B.S. in health services offered through the health services administration department + D.P.T. program.
In this sequential-degree pathway, entering freshmen matriculate in and complete their B.S. degree through the respective departments. Upon completion of the B.S. degree, students who satisfy all D.P.T. admission requirements are accepted into the three-year doctor of physical therapy (D.P.T.) program.
For a further description of the D.P.T. curriculum and academic requirements, please refer to the D'Youville College Graduate Catalog. The three-year graduate D.P.T. program is registered with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) of the American Physical Therapy Association:
