Ten Reasons Why AU

Ten Reasons Why You Should Earn Your Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from Anderson University

  1. Small Class Size

    Our small class size means you’ll receive more individualized attention and benefit from low faculty-to-student ratios in your coursework.

  2. Competitive Cost

    Our program has a comparable cost to the publicly funded Doctor of Physical Therapy programs in South Carolina, and if you’re an out-of-state student, you won’t pay additional tuition as you would at a state school.

  3. Shorter Program

    AU’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program takes fewer semesters to complete than other Doctor of Physical Therapy programs in South Carolina, so you get into the job market sooner.

  4. Mentorship at School and in Community

    We have a dual mentoring system, where you learn from both AU faculty and community partners.

  5. New, State-of-the-Art Facilities and Equipment

    You’ll learn on the finest equipment in our state-of-the-art space in Greenville.

  6. More Choice in Clinical Placements

    There are no placement lotteries in our program; you’ll have greater input into where your clinical education sites will be.

  7. Early Clinical Exposure

    You’ll be able to hit the ground running as you gain exposure to a variety of clinical sites and interact with other health care professionals.

  8. Community Outreach and Service Learning

    Because we’re committed to serving others, you’ll have multiple opportunities to get involved in community outreach and service-learning activities.

  9. Pursue Specialties

    Everyone has a different calling. At AU, you’ll have opportunities to pursue specialty interests within the field of physical therapy.

  10. Professional and Christian Values

    Knowledge and skill are not enough. Our faculty models the professional and Christian values that will help make you a competent and compassionate physical therapist.
