Entry Level - Weekend Format



Entry Level - Weekend Format

The Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy: Entry-Level program is available for women and men with a baccalaureate degree. It prepares you to be certified as a registered occupational therapist.

The MAOT weekend/hybrid option is a rigorous, full-time program. While the courses are offered through flexible scheduling, students must plan carefully to balance the demands of graduate school with other work, family and community obligations.

Students who choose to work during the day while pursuing the graduate degree should plan ahead for possible daytime commitments when completing their fieldwork and some group assignments.
