Physical Rehabilitation Therapy Minor

The minor provides knowledge and skills related to physical-rehabilitative therapies: however, additional course work in specialized programs is required to obtain certification and licensure in order to practice. Students interested in becoming certified and licensed should contact the professional associations of interest for additional information. This minor may be of interest to students in a wide variety of pre-professional healthcare programs. Courses in this minor may also be used to satisfy requirements in other major programs.

A grade of C or higher is required in all courses in this minor.
