The University of Saint Joseph offers a dual degree program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.

Students who qualify for this program are able to earn their bachelor’s degree at the University of Saint Joseph and then move to their doctorate in physical therapy program at the University of Hartford.   

Students complete their prerequisite courses for the DPT program while completing their Biology degree and then apply to the University of Hartford for the DPT program where there are two admissions vacancies for qualified USJ students. Learn more about the 4+3 degree.
