About

The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree prepares students for lifelong and rewarding careers. Graduates are prepared to play their part in improving quality of life for people who experience difficulties and challenges to everyday living.

Overview

As the only graduate entry-level program in South Carolina, the curriculum is rigorous and engaging. Educational technology enhances classroom learning, group work develops professional skills, and experiential learning refines practice skills.

Interprofessional education is a hallmark of the program and involves connections with other health professionals across the campus and in the community. Research shows that working in teams produces better outcomes. Teamwork supports innovation and promotes excellence.

Beginning in the first semester, fieldwork experiences are an integral part of the curriculum and allow opportunities for direct observation and participation in a variety of practice settings and contexts. These experiences help integrate learning from the classroom and lab and enhance capacity for becoming a proficient occupational therapist.

The program culminates in two fulltime 12-week rotations at facilities throughout the state and across the country working under the direct supervision of a clinical instructor.
