  • Students have the option to pursue a minor in another discipline.
  • Graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy and apply for state licensure, if required.

Two-Year Graduate Program

Our two-year entry-level master's degree program is for students who already hold a baccalaureate degree.

  • Students with baccalaureate degrees in other fields complete two years of course work to earn their Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree.
  • Upon successful completion of the second year, students will be awarded a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.
  • Graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy and apply for state licensure, if required.
