3+3 Accelerated BA + DPT
BA at CST and Doctor of Physical Therapy at Temple's College of Health Professions
Students with CST majors are eligible to apply for the accelerated seven year program to get a BA in CST and a DPT at TU’s Department of Physical Therapy at the College of Health Professions. All CST majors are eligible, but biology majors are also allowed to count certain of their first year physical therapy courses as electives in their major.
Applicants to the 3 + 3 accelerated program must register with the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies during their first semester of their freshman year. Applications for the accelerated program are due before the end of the fall semester of freshman year. Students apply to Temple’s College of Health during their junior year.
This program is designed for those planning to work in physical therapy, but completion of the CST major also enables individuals to enter careers in a variety of areas, depending on the major.
The BA portion of the program is the same as the CST BA with the exception that biology majors are also allowed to count certain of their first year physical therapy courses as electives in their major.
