Program Description
Andrews University is a Christian university with an enrollment of approximately 3,000 students. The Physical Therapy Department meets the criteria of a quality program - a reputation of solid academics and distinguished faculty.

Our mission is to Unite Christian Values with Healthcare Education. Our three-year entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy Program delivers, within a Christian environment, the knowledgebase and clinical skills that will prepare students for contemporary practice across the full spectrum of physical therapy services. The faculty of the program is exceptionally well prepared to teach in their area of expertise and is committed to helping students reach their maximum potential. Faculty members also serve as mentors to students for clinical practice, research and professional service to the community. In addition to a quality educational experience, graduate classes are kept small to provide a personal learning experience. Andrews PT students are not in competition with any classmate for grades or ranking. Students are encouraged to help each other succeed through student-to-student peer coaching. Students learn the art of caring while developing the skills required to perform a physical therapy examination and evaluation, establish a differential diagnosis, and provide direct physical therapy intervention for their clients as independent practitioners. Undergraduate students receive two degrees: a Bachelor of Health Science after completion of their first year and the Doctor of Physical Therapy upon completion of the program. Andrews also offers two postprofessional doctoral degrees, the transitional DPT and the DScPT.

Berrien Springs is a rural community located 2 hours east of Chicago or 30 minutes north of the University of Notre Dame. A commercial airport and Amtrak train station is located in South Bend, Indiana, 25 minutes away. The Andrews University campus and surrounding communities offer work and recreational opportunities. The sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, major shopping malls, sporting arenas and a large variety of restaurants and entertainment are available within 30 minutes. Dormitories and apartments are located on and around the Berrien Springs campus. Parking is easily accessible at all campus locations.
