Students have the choice of integrated or sequential formats for their PTA education. For the integrated format, students attend school full-time, taking general education and physical therapist education courses each semester. The integrated format is generally chosen by first-year students who want a traditional college experience.
For the sequential format, students have completed some or all of the general education requirements before entering the PTA program and then take the PTA courses on a part-time basis. The sequential format is generally chosen by adult students who cannot attend school full-time.
The PTA courses are in the evening. Students from both formats enroll in the same PTA courses, providing an interesting mix of students who bring different experiences to the classroom.
