Pre-Physical Therapy

Pre-Physical Therapy Program

Schreiner University offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Exercise Science. Exercise Science is the study of scientific applications to human movements and performance. Since it is the means to all accomplishments, movement is one of the most important things that man does. The study of Exercise Science seeks to determine the physiological, psychological, and sociological factors influencing simple movement and/or exercise. The program emphasizes the scientific application of these factors to human performance. The ability to logically and scientifically analyze and evaluate human performance is
useful in many areas.

Many professional possibilities exist in the area of Exercise Science, and more are becoming available each year. Some students elect to pursue a teaching certificate in order to teach Physical Education in public or private schools. Other students may choose to work as exercise leaders or fitness directors in private athletic facilities or corporate fitness programs.

If you are interested in strength and conditioning, personal training, becoming a physical education teacher, directing corporate fitness programs, working in health promotion, or working as an exercise technician in Cardiac Rehabilitation you can pursue the Pre-Physical Therapy program.
