Program Description:

Mercy Colleges offers a 60 credit two year full-time weekend program with classes scheduled every other weekend. The program incorporates a variety of learning methods including a mixture of lecture, discussion, small group problem solving, hands-on experiences, problem based learning (PBL) and our innovative "learning by doing" philosophy. Faculty is comprised of occupational therapy practitioners with various specializations, providing Mercy students with first-rate, well rounded instruction. Most faculty members have published within the field and are nationally recognized for their expertise. Graduates apply for licensure and entry level work. From there you’ll be working in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, regional schools and elsewhere, with people with spinal cord injuries, cancer, strokes, autism, cerebral palsy or developmental problems, and many other conditions and illnesses. Many of our alumni hold leadership roles where they work, and have returned to the OT program as PBL facilitators, teaching associates, guest lecturers, and lab assistants.


The Mercy College Occupational Therapy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA). Mercy College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education
