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.
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.
