Choosing the exercise science concentration as my route to physical therapy school was one of my best academic decisions. Not only was I prepared to be accepted to a Doctor of Physical Therapy program, but I also developed a strong passion for exercise and nutrition. My favorite part of the Physical Activity & Health program is the practicality of the content. I can use the knowledge I gained from these classes in my everyday life.”
