Student takes notes in class

Bachelors of Science in Pre-Physical Therapy
or Pre-Occupational Therapy

Southern Nazarene University’s Pre-Physical Therapy & Pre-Occupational Therapy is regionally known for the quality of students that continue into the top graduate schools in the country including University of Oklahoma Health & Science Center, Langston and Northwestern University. The program is designed to reflect the classes for admittance at OUHSC yet students may customize their degree to meet the prerequisite requirements of other specific professional programs. In fact, our program has four core “hands on” courses, Lower Extremity Injury Evaluation, Upper Extremity Injury Evaluation, Therapeutic Modalities and Therapeutic Physical Rehabilitation. These courses are very unusual to incorporate on the undergraduate level—the result is our graduates feel like they are years ahead of the rest of the class in graduate school.

When you graduate with your degree in Kinesiology from SNU, you’ll have the preparation you need for a successful career in many professions such as:

  • Physician Assistant
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy Assistant
  • Occupational Therapy Assistant
  • Personal Trainer

SNU offers you the opportunity to study with credentialed faculty as you journey toward graduation, another step closer to reaching your goals. These scholars with a Christian worldview will mentor and guide you along the way.  SNU’s smaller size allows students to interact with faculty — not only in the classroom, but also through impactful mentoring, personal advising, and meaningful research. Come and be known; come and belong.
