IMO I would say generally any degree geared towards health sciences or even in any science field will be more beneficial as it will prepare you for the courses you will take while in physical therapy school in term sof difficulty and study habits. It will also help you in fulfilling the pre reqs needed to apply to school. However, you should choose a major you can do well in as your GPA will reflect your performance and is one critera used for admission decisions (though not the only thing used). So if you feel like you're not too strong in the sciences, I suggest majoring in something you're really interested in learning, then fulfilling your pre req courses at your own pace during undergrad or even after you have graduated.
Thanks for the advice. Im just not sure on what to get a degree in because theres always a possibility it wont work out and i dont want to be stuck with a degree that wont be very benificial other than for physical therapy
What is the best bachelor degree to get for physical therapy school and why? jw what you guys in put is. thanks!
Everyone gave really good advice. Like others, I majored in a science becuase it covers all the pre-reqs, but just to make sure if PT does not work out, you need a back up plan in another field.
I minored in a field that could be useful for many occupations and my emphasis in my major could also be used in other professions as well. Just have all your bases covered if worst comes to worst
