Inhae Song, a junior from South Korea who is in the College’s Chinese Flagship program and was an Intern at the Asia Society, said, “One of the great benefits of the Hunter Team is our access to U.N. Headquarters and diplomats, and the fact that, at Hunter, the Model U.N. Team is a class, so we have the time to write in-depth research papers.

The Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program is a collaboration between the Graduate Center of CUNY and Hunter College. Hunter has offered Continuing Education courses in physical therapy and other health sciences since the founding of the School of Health Sciences in the late 1960s. The school remains the only one of its kind in the City University of New York system. The DPT is the preferred entry-level degree for all physical therapists. It is a clinical degree, like those awarded to podiatrists and dentists.
The Program is full time program, with courses offered during the day, and three calendar years in duration. The curriculum provides students with a strong foundation covering all aspects of Physical Therapy practice, followed by the attainment of advanced skills.
