Three Year Entry-level MS Weekend Program - Overview

The weekend program utilizes a three-year model, with classes meeting on alternating weekends year round. This program is specifically designed for individuals who possess a baccalaureate degree in another discipline. COTAs may meet the requirements for a bachelor's degree in health sciences by completing a prerequisite year and the first year of the professional curriculum. The weekend program presents professional occupational therapy coursework in an adult learning model to produce a holistic practitioner who has a strong background in the use of occupation and critical inquiry skills to advance the profession. Some courses include the use of Blackboard as a distance learning component, with reduced face to face meeting time.
