General Information

The Department of Rehabilitation Sciences offers the Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree (DPT), the Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders, the Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and the Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Sciences.

The Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Sciences has a curriculum designed to meet the needs of students seeking entry-level positions in health care or preparing for graduate study in a variety of health professions, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, prosthetics, and sports medicine. Elective courses increase the flexibility of this degree, so that students planning to apply to graduate programs in other health disciplines could consider this degree program. The bachelor’s degree program combines the strong science curriculum (chemistry, physics, biology, anatomy, and physiology) needed for success in the health professions with a strong background in the behavioral sciences (general and abnormal psychology, and health and human development). The student’s knowledge of exercise and exercise principles is developed through courses that focus on the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and cardiovascular-pulmonary bases of exercise.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders provides preparation in the normal processes of communication and its development, as well as in the identification and treatment of communication disorders for students whose career interests include audiology and speech-language pathology. In addition, the Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders provides a broad foundation in normal and disordered aspects of speech, language, and hearing for students who are interested in pursuing careers in disciplines such as deaf education, speech science, hearing science, special education, and child development.
