Programs in Texas

Volunteer experience in the field will strengthen a student's interpersonal skills as well as increase his understanding of career requirements. In Texas, physical therapists must receive a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited university and then enroll in a master's level program. There are no bachelor's degree programs for physical therapists in the state.

The State of Texas requires that physical therapists hold at least a master's degree from an accredited physical therapy program and pass a national exam administered by the Executive Council of Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy Examiners.
