Nancy’s Answer

Many potential physical therapists start with exercise science, biology, kinesiology, or psychology majors, according to www.apta.com. Other careers that require less schooling but are related are physical therapy assistants and physical therapy technicians. Sports and fitness instructors may also begin with these majors.

Hannah, I myself took up exercise science prior to physical therapy school. It’s a good start and gives you a good foundation for what comes later.
