Admissions Information for 2021-2022

Most students in our 6-year BS in Exercise Science/Doctor of Physical Therapy program enter directly from high school. Occasionally, there are seats available for those who have earned a bachelor of science degree from a university other than Husson, and would like to enter our DPT program directly. We do not anticipate that there will be any room available for those seeking direct entry to our DPT program for this academic year, beginning in fall 2021, or for the next academic year, beginning in fall 2022.

The mission of the Husson Physical Therapy Program is to graduate generalist practitioners who are movement specialists with advanced skills in selected practice areas.  These skilled, knowledgeable, ethical, and reflective practitioners are independent in their assessment of client needs and collaborative within the health care team for the promotion of health and function.  These graduates are responsible and self-directed learners, both adaptable and successful in utilizing evidence-based practice to address issues within diverse and complex health care systems, practice environments and client populations.

Students in Husson’s DPT program also have the option to pursue a dual degree program to earn a Master of Business Administration in addition to the DPT. This dual degree prepares students for careers as licensed physical therapists with added expertise in pursing private practice ownership, and competitive management/administrative positions.
