Program Information

The pre-physical therapy pathway will prepare you to enter a bachelor’s degree program in pre-physical therapy and successful completion assures the student a strong foundation for further study in chemistry and physics related fields as well. This degree is for students planning to pursue a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree.

Do you like to help people? Do you like working directly with patients? Do you want to have flexibility in the hours and locations where you work? Would you like to enter a profession which is highly in demand and has great job stability? Physical therapists provide services that help improve mobility, restore function, relieve pain and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients with injuries or disease.  They work closely with patients and clients to restore, maintain and promote their overall fitness and wellness for healthier and more active lifestyles.  Physical Therapists practice in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, home health agencies, sports and fitness facilities and outpatient clinics. 

Butler Community College is committed to flexible pathways for our student’s success. Courses are offered in varying delivery formats; face-to-face, blended and online. When reviewing this pathway, please check the Class Schedule to identify which format the course is offered to make sure you are selecting the delivery modality that fits your needs.
