Hi Alexas! Each exercise science program is different depending on the school you choose but most of the time exercise science gives you a foundation such as anatomy and physiology, modalities, kinesiology and motor movement etc. that is needed for a physical therapy PhD program. Some schools have pre-physical therapy programs, athletic training or sports medicine that would fit well into continuing your education to become a physical therapist too.
