Overview

With the Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy at Liberty University  you’ll get hands-on learning as you participate in seminars, engage in lab experiences, and perform clinical training in hospitals.

Choose between two pathways to your degree. Get the residential BSRT if you are new to the field, or the online BSRT (Post-Licensure) if you are already a practicing respiratory therapist with a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential.

Here, you’ll learn from experienced and credentialed faculty and train with therapists, physicians, and nurses as you get your degree. This will prepare you to collaborate professionally with all members of the healthcare profession.

In addition to your core courses in respiratory therapy, you’ll also participate in clinical education courses. These courses incorporate a clinical component that includes practical experience, allowing you to develop as a competent professional under the supervision of a preceptor.
