Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (Post-Baccalaureate)
Occupational therapy promotes health, well-being, and life satisfaction by supporting participation in meaningful, purposeful daily activities. OT practitioners empower individuals to live their best lives through preventive measures, recovery supports, or activity adaptation and modification. Becoming an occupational therapist is an excellent choice for students who are passionate about helping others and are creative problem-solvers.
Alvernia University's post-baccalaureate Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program is designed for students with an earned bachelor's degree who are ready to take the next step in their professional journey. The MSOT curriculum prepares students for entry-level practice in traditional and role-emerging settings, and with clients across the lifespan: i.e., hospitals, clinics, schools, rehabilitation centers, skilled nursing facilities, home health, etc. Comprising compassion, creativity and client-centric solutions, occupational therapy meets the health needs of an ever changing world.
Alvernia offers two MSOT degree tracks based upon a student's previous coursework:
The five-year BSHS + MSOT program, grounded in a strong liberal arts foundation, is designed to prepare graduates for entry into professional level occupational therapy practice.
The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (Post-Baccalaureate) degree program is designed for students who have earned a baccalaureate degree in another area of study and wish to become qualified as an occupational therapist.
