Physical Therapy: A Bachelor’s degree is required for admission into WVU’s Physical Therapy program. While students can apply with any major, exercise physiology is the most common.  The pre-physical therapy degree at PSC offers the first two years of the exercise physiology degree. WVU’s Physical Therapy program is a 3 year program and students earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
