Students who plan to pursue physical therapy have two options for completing the program. An undergraduate and professional degree can be completed in six (3+3 track) or seven (4+3 track) years.
3+3 track: Three years of undergraduate coursework is best suited for students who meet direct entry admission criteria and seek a degree in either Exercise Science, Interdisciplinary Studies or Public Health.
4+3 track: Four years of undergraduate coursework is best suited and may promote a richer educational experience for students who do not meet direct entry admission criteria; who wish to pursue an undergraduate degree in Athletic Training, Biology, Health Services Administration, Public Heath or another area; who desire to study abroad at Harlaxton for a full semester, or who want to participate in Division I athletics. Five years of undergraduate study may be necessary for Athletic Training majors who wish to participate in Division I athletics.

Interdisciplinary Studies (IS)
The IS undergraduate major is designed for the individual who may have a variety of academic interests. A key word when discussing the IS major is flexibility. A major in IS allows the student to select courses from at least two distinct academic disciplines. The student's IS plan of study must be approved by the IS committee.
