At UWM, “Pre-Physical Therapy”, “Pre-Med” and similar graduate/professional school preparation designations are not majors. Students must declare one of the health majors to pair with their “pre” designation.
Students who wish to complete a School of Rehabilitation Sciences & Technology (RST) major as they pursue admission to graduate/professional school for further study in any of the following areas may receive advising for their undergraduate major and graduate/professional school preparation solely from their RST advisor:
- athletic training (traditional MS or accelerated BS/MS)
- communication sciences and disorders (speech-language pathology, audiology)
- occupational therapy
- physical therapy
UWM offers many of these graduate programs, and in many cases, designated slots are set aside for our own students! Contact your advisor for details.
