Baker’s Master of Occupational Therapy program is a continuation of the Bachelor of Health Science Pre-Occupational Therapy program.
The graduate level program revolves around learning through problem-based case management, blending theory, logic, clinical reasoning, and pragmatic skills in an interactive learning environment. The curriculum is designed to encourage discussion and debate, and puts emphasis on the skills required to develop treatment choices based on sound research and theoretical assumptions.
As a graduate, you’ll be prepared for entry-level practice, national certification, and state licensure.
Applications are available prior to the fall semester while students are completing required prerequisite courses.
A criminal conviction may prevent eligibility to sit for the national certification examination, qualification for state registration/licensure, specific employment opportunities, and placement at Level I and Level II clinical sites.
This program is not offered online.
