This program builds upon your previous education and experience by providing a course of professional study that stresses active, independent inquiry, critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and professional behaviors. You’ll be exposed to practice in hospitals, health institutions, schools, and community agencies.
Engaged, dedicated faculty
Our faculty are committed to the success of our students. Faculty research areas include hoarding disorder, pediatric mental health, and the effects of sensory room use on stress in students.
Graduate student support
Our Office of Graduate Studies connects you with opportunities for professional development, scholarships, and graduate assistantships. They also foster our graduate student community through Peer Mentorship and the Graduate Student Board.
Scholarships offer financial aid that doesn’t need to be repaid. We encourage students in graduate degree programs to apply for scholarship opportunities.
Our learning facilities include a dedicated pediatric clinic space which includes sensory integration equipment. We have a separate dedicated space for adults, including modalities and exercise equipment, and a lab space that includes a kitchen and bathroom for learning activities for daily living.
Engage in three separate fieldwork experiences that will occur concurrently with your coursework as well as two fieldwork experiences at the completion of coursework. These experiences take place in community and clinical settings, highlighting traditional and non-traditional sites for occupational therapy.
