The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, consisting of both classroom instruction and fieldwork, may be completed in approximately 24 months. The program is designed to prepare students, upon completion of degree requirements, to sit for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) for the practice of occupational therapy. After passing the NBCOT exam, students may apply for licensure in the state in which they intend to practice.
Mission and Vision
The Mission of the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy is to prepare occupational therapy students to think and act critically, missionally and globally in Christian service and leadership throughout their respective communities.
We believe in teaching students to recognize that occupation in its broadest sense is a great gift from God and therefore requires great responsibility. This responsibility is taught through our core values of faith, service, authenticity, innovation and competency.
