Program Description:

Occupational therapists help people live their lives to the fullest by providing therapy and support to help them take part in daily activities.

They help people recover from injuries, live with disabilities, or adapt to physical and cognitive changes.

Kean’s master's degree program in occupational therapy provides a broad education in the field for students who hold a bachelor's degree in another field. Approximately 30 students are admitted to the program each September. Each student completes five semesters of required academic courses and a minimum of six months of supervised fieldwork in an approved clinical setting. 

The program offers a rich array of hands-on clinical experiences and fieldwork, beginning in the student's first semester. Kean also operates a clinic on campus, where students have an opportunity to work with clients, to develop and master their skills in occupational therapy.

With an excellent outlooks for jobs and career growth, the future for occupational therapy students is bright.

The program is offered at Kean’s East Campus in Union.
