Helping a senior citizen who has suffered an injury regain the ability to walk, working with a child who has disabilities, or helping an athlete get back the full range of motion in an injured arm are examples of the ways physical therapists change people's lives. As a natural science pre-physical therapy major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, you may benefit from an accelerated, three-year program; IUP has made special arrangements that could allow you to transfer credits from your first year at Gannon University Physical Therapy Program in Erie, Pa. to IUP to satisfy your senior-year graduation requirements.

At IUP, you'll take a block of classes in biology, chemistry, and physics to prepare you for the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. You'll also take IUP classes in the humanities and social sciences. If you prefer to finish your bachelor's degree in four years, there are other options and majors at IUP you may want to consider.
