Occupational Therapy, which began in 1917, is a health field that focuses on individuals' ability to do their everyday occupations in self-care, work, and leisure (such as dressing, homemaking, working, and recreating). Its goal is to help people achieve their own unique, desired lifestyles. It requires getting to know individuals personally, understanding their goals, and identifying creative ways to allow them to reach their desired levels of independence and productivity. This work is highly personal and creative. In addition to working directly with clients, occupational therapists often consult with others important to the client about adapting the client's lifestyle or environment. Occupational Therapists also design programs for themselves or others to implement, they speak on behalf of clients and their families, and they participate in research.

Students must complete a minimum of 103 credits, which includes 24 weeks (940 hours) of full-time fieldwork and a doctoral capstone in order to be eligible to sit for the national certification examination and to apply for state licensure. To allow for continuity of academic and clinical learning, students must complete Level II fieldwork and experiential requirements within 24 months following completion of the didactic portion of the program unless they have written permission from the program director to extend the timeline.


The Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) curriculum consists of 103 credits, including 56 credits in the core area, 8 credits of level I experiences which includes service learning, 14 credits of Level II Fieldwork, 6 credits of electives, 1 credit for competency examination and preparation, and 18 credits of doctoral capstone. The doctoral capstone is comprised of 3 preparatory seminar courses, the doctoral experience, and the doctoral project. The doctoral experience and doctoral project are completed after completion of all Fieldwork and the competency examination. The 33-month program begins fall semester. A part-time option is available for students who wish to complete the program in 4 years.

Students are required to select two elective courses as part of the required OTD academic course work. These courses are meant to provide students with in-depth knowledge in areas relevant to practice and their doctoral capstone.
