Unfortunately UNCW does not have a Pre-Physical Therapy undergraduate degree program. Instead undergraduate students must choose a different academic major to study. The majority of undergraduate students at UNCW interested in entering the field of Physical Therapy choose Exercise Science as their major which is a Physical Education (P.E.) degree with a concentration in exercise science. Below is a link to the 2008-2009 Undergraduate catalogue where you can find the Exercise Science course list.
