About Our Program

The two-year, entry-level, MSOT program is an 80-credit full time program consisting of a fully online first semester with all other didactic content delivered in person during daytime, weekday classes with some evening commitments.

The program begins at the end of May, with the first four courses fully online using a combination of synchronous and asynchronous methods (See Technology and Required Competencies below). Students then arrive to campus in August for a condensed 3-week Anatomy and Physiology Course with full dissection cadaver lab. All courses are sequential.

The curriculum is designed to provide an excellent education for students planning for professional roles as occupational therapy practitioners in traditional settings, as well as in areas of newly identified need. All qualified students are awarded a Master of Science degree after successful completion of the coursework. In addition to online and face to face didactic coursework, the program also requires completion of both level I and level II fieldwork experiences, and a master capstone project.
