Frequently used resources for students of the Occupational Therapy program.
The Department of Rehabilitation Sciences offers a post-baccalaureate, entry-level Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.
The two-year entry-level program (4 academic semesters and six months fieldwork) includes 70 credit hours of graduate coursework. The program prepares graduates to practice as generalists in the profession of occupational therapy. It requires students to obtain and utilize a broad liberal arts education prior to entry. It prepares students to function in a wide variety of settings utilizing the principles and intervention approaches related to occupation, and to supervise occupational therapy support personnel.
Graduates of the program are expected:
- to adopt the values of ethical practice
- to be effective consumers of research as a basis for practice
- to advocate for the profession and for its clients
- to pursue lifelong learning as a means of keeping current with best professional practice.
The program utilizes technology to enhance the delivery of courses, and students are expected to have sufficient computer skills to fully participate. They must have unrestricted access to a computer. The program also involves clinical placement at various points in the curriculum, and students should be prepared to provide their own transportation to local clinic sites. Level II fieldwork (24 weeks of clinical internship) at the conclusion of the program may involve placement at a distant site. Students are responsible for their own travel and housing for this phase of the program.
