As an occupational therapist, you could help someone who is disabled cook or drive a car. Or you could help a person with permanent disabilities use special equipment. If that interests you, our program in occupational therapy may be just what you’re looking for.
Our program is an entry-level program that leads to a master’s degree. First, you’ll complete a bachelor’s degree on our campus. You can choose any major. Most students who want to be occupational therapists pick biology, psychology or sports medicine/exercise science.
Then, you will apply to the University of Pittsburgh’s master of occupational therapy program in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.
We have a special arrangement with the University of Pittsburgh that we call a Freshman Guarantee. It means that if you meet certain criteria, you will automatically be accepted into the master’s degree program. You won’t have to compete for admission.
