The concentration in Pre-Physical Therapy (PPT) is for people interested in eventual graduate education in Physical Therapy or allied health fields (viz., occupational therapy, physician's assistant, medical or dental school) after graduation from CSUSB. CSUSB Kinesiology PPT students will engage in a rigorous course of study in Kinesiology, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. This concentration offers undergraduate students the necessary pre-requisites for advanced study in Physical Therapy or an applied health profession.

Students interested in the PPT concentration must complete the following criteria before s/he is admitted into the concentration. A student with an interest in the PPT concentration should declare Kinesiology as her/his major and register as an ´┐Żundeclared´┐Ż concentration until the criteria (listed below) are met.
