Occupational Therapy, MS


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

Occupational therapists require a minimum of a master’s degree to practice in the field of occupational therapy. They work with individuals across the lifespan who have cognitive, physical, and mental challenges, helping them improve their ability to perform everyday tasks and achieve more independence. They begin by assessing patients’ current abilities, and then they develop and implement plans of care that help the patients learn or regain the skills needed to live, work, and play. The delivery of the Occupational Therapy program at the graduate level revolves around instructors facilitating learning through problem-based case management. Students in the program will utilize theory, logic, clinical reasoning and pragmatic skills in an interactive learning environment.
