Occupational Science and Therapy

General

Program Description

Imagine if you could study OT in an environment where the professors “get” the real world because they’ve all worked in it themselves.

Would it be easier to plan your career if you had OT experiences in hospitals, nursing homes, school districts, private practices, adult day care centers, and child care programs while you were still in school?

How confident would you be in your ability after you’ve had more than 1,380 hours of real-world, OT experience … more than any other OT graduates in the country.

How secure would you feel knowing that 95-100% of the people who have been through the same OT program you’re in had at least one job offer on the table before they graduated? (Source: Annual Program Evaluation)
