NAU provided me with an excellent education, not only for the PT program but also for general college courses for arts and humanities in addition to the sciences. The physical therapy courses were arduous but exhilarating and involved a lot of hands on training in addition to the classroom. The instructors were all excellent and well versed in their respective teaching modules.
