General Information

The Department of Physical Therapy offers a program leading to the Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy (MScPT).

The course-based MScPT program is designed to provide students with the clinical and evaluative skills necessary for the practice of physical therapy. This course-based master’s degree is for students who hold undergraduate degrees in a variety of fields.

The MScPT program is currently offered at three campus locations: Edmonton, Camrose and Calgary. Of the students admitted to the program, a portion are admitted to our Edmonton, Camrose and Calgary campuses based on student preference. All students begin the program with a one month residency in Edmonton to study anatomy and establish initial face-to-face connections with the colleagues they will be working with via technology throughout the remainder of their program. With the MScPT program’s distributed education model, students at all campuses complete the same core program of required courses as their colleagues enrolled at the other campuses. Each campus will offer unique elective opportunities reflective of local expertise and community partnerships in addition to the online electives available to all.
