A student works in the OT lab.This graduate-level program is for students who have completed a baccalaureate degree in any field and who now want to pursue a career in occupational therapy, a high-growth healthcare profession.

This program requires the following course work to be completed with a grade of C+ or better prior to entry into the M.S. in Occupational Therapy program:

  • General Psychology
  • Abnormal Psychology
  • Statistics

  • Human Growth and Development

We require that applicants submit evidence of 20  hours of volunteering or “shadowing” a clinician in at least two areas of Occupational Therapy to be sure applicants understand the profession and the role of an occupational therapist.

Once admitted, all students must receive a grade of C+ or better in all Occupational Therapy courses and maintain an overall GPA of 3.0. The MS in Occupational Therapy is awarded after successful completion of the third year of study and supervised clinical fieldwork.
