Department of Occupational Therapy
We strive to impart the leading-edge knowledge and skills that make a meaningful impact on patient care. Through innovative teaching, we prepare you to work in a variety of medical and community settings and become a leader in this flourishing field.
We understand that different students have different goals and work on different timelines. That’s why we offer three different OT programs, including one of the only accelerated pathways to a clinical Doctorate of Occupational Therapy in the country.
Earn a BS in health sciences after 3½ years and a DrOT after an additional 2½ years.
An accelerated pathway for those who have already earned a bachelor’s degree and satisfied all prerequisite courses.
Earn a master’s degree in just 2 ½ years of full-time study once you’ve satisfied all prerequisite courses.
