The Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology-Pre-P.T. is designed to prepare students to meet the entry requirements for most graduate programs in Physical Therapy including the Hampton University Physical Therapy (D.PT.) graduate program. Additionally this curriculum provides a solid foundation for graduate study in Athletic Training and other areas in the exercise sciences.
The curriculum closely mirrors the Hampton University B.S. degree program in Health and Physical Education, but with increased science and mathematics requirements. This program might be considered somewhat of a “hybrid” since successful completion will lead to state and national standards for certification to teach Health and Physical Education, as well as the prerequisites in Physical Therapy.
Scholarships & Financial Assistance
Scholarships are awarded for qualifying students through the University Scholarship Program. These include Presidential Scholars, Academic Achievers, and various Departmental scholarships as obtained through grants, projects, internships, Army and Navy scholarships, government agencies, industry, and other organizations. Information on other sources of financial assistance (e.g., Pell Grant, Work-Study, Federal Direct Loan Programs, etc.) is available through the University Financial Aid Office.
The Department is accredited by the Department of Education of the state of Virginia, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE).
