Program Overview

Occupational therapists work with people at all stages of life. They teach children with learning disabilities techniques to achieve in school. They provide effective strategies for the elderly to help them remain independent and active. They help regain or adapt the abilities of people with injuries or lifelong disabilities so they may participate in daily activities at work, school, home or in the community.

With the maturing of the baby boomer generation, the rise in autism diagnoses and the return of military personnel with injuries, the demand for occupational therapists is growing.

In our five-and-a-half-year BS/MOT program, you’ll work alongside expert faculty using modern facilities, such as our suite of life-size patient simulators and a model apartment with adaptive technologies. You’ll apply theory to practice beginning in your first year with an OT course. In your junior year, you’ll participate in supervised learning in community settings with our renowned clinical and community partners.
