Program Description:

The Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program is an entry level program designed for bachelor or master-degree holders who want to work as a licensed occupational therapist.  The program utilizes a combination of fully online courses, blended (mixed delivery of online content with face-to-face) and fully face-to-face coursework for a dynamic and flexible student experience.  Upon successful completion of the program, students will be prepared to take the certification examination administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).


The mission of the University’s OTD program is to graduate a diverse population of practitioners who have the doctoral level skills necessary to analyze human occupation and to implement science-driven and evidence-based interventions that promote quality of life for the clients whom they serve. The graduates will contribute to their profession and to a global society through their competence, ethical standards and professionalism.
