Why Choose WSU?

Weber State University is the country’s largest baccalaureate school for respiratory therapy. While other programs only offer an associate’s degree, an increasing number of employers are looking for candidates with a bachelor’s degree.

We offer respiratory therapy associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs in three locations:

  • Weber State University’s main campus in Ogden
  • Weber State University Davis in Layton
  • Salt Lake City

What is a respiratory therapist?

If someone has a hard time breathing, respiratory therapists are there to help. They work with patients in a wide variety of areas, including:

  • Newborn intensive care
  • Adult critical care
  • Emergency care
  • Air and ground transport

In addition, respiratory therapists treat and educate asthma and emphysema patients and help with the rehabilitation of patients with diseases that require long-term breathing retraining.
