Update: January, 2012
The DPT curriculum has been approved by CSULB, the CSU office of the Chancellor and by WASC. The final approval from WASC was given on January 10, 2012.
What is the present alternative for our graduates? Are we going to offer a t-DPT degree?
Once we are up and running with the DPT and all MPT students have graduated, we plan to offer a t-DPT degree. This may be part of a residency program but at this time we cannot say for sure. We are unable to start planning for the t-DPT at this time.
Many graduates have earned t-DPT degrees. Local programs are available. We have been in communication with Western University to insure credit for our MPT courses towards their t-DPT degree. Two universities from which our graduates have earned distance-learning t-DPTs are Temple and Boston Universities.
