As the first entry-level master’s program of its kind in New Jersey, our Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (M.S.O.T.) program offered by Seton Hall University has shaped hundreds of students into competent general practitioners.
With our unique blend of academics and clinical experience, you’ll be well-prepared to join this booming healthcare field. Our students do exceptionally well on the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) exam, and many have job offers before they graduate.
The three-step occupational therapy curriculum begins with foundational coursework. The next phase is clinical courses that cover the impact of health conditions and impairments on activities, as well the selection and implementation of appropriate assessments and interventions for older adults, adults and children/adolescents. The final terms focus on prevention, health promotion and wellness. The occupational therapy program provides increasing challenges and complexities as the curriculum unfolds. A thread of “professional formation,” which focuses on creating your professional identity—including servant leadership, which is consistent with the Seton Hall University mission—runs throughout the entire occupational therapy curriculum.
The Occupational Therapy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA)
