Doctoral Programs

Health Sciences

Offerings in the Doctor of Health Science program, with its application to advanced practice skills, allow students to obtain their educational goals while still working. The DHSc degree provides specialized preparation for practicing occupational therapists, physical therapists or other clinicians in six different concentrations. Minors include administration, education, or professional issues. Nationally known clinical experts teach in the postprofessional programs, thus ensuring that students obtain the most up-to-date and clinically relevant information.

The DPT program prepares outstanding clinicians to enter practice across the full spectrum of physical therapy settings. Our full-time, three-year program equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to function as physical therapists in increasingly complex and independent roles. Our graduates perform well on the physical therapist licensure exam and are highly regarded in the physical therapy job market.
