How many years of college education--or higher--is needed to to become a physical therapist?
I am a senior in high school and I am interesting in majoring in kinesiology. #physical-therapy #physical-therapy #physical-therapist #college #psychology #medicine
Great question and an awesome field to get involved in.
To become a Physical Therapist, you will have to get your bachelors degree (kineseology is a good option but some schools with have a pre-physical therapy major). Once you complete your bachelors program you will be required to attend Physical Therapy Grad School which typically is about 2 years worth of schooling.
Some of my friends are going to Physical Therapy and they are majoring in exercise science! They are also getting just a bachelor's degree but of course you can always get more degrees for a higher salary. Exercise science is a good career if you want to be able to go to medical school as well.
