  • 12 months
, TX,
The mission of the Master of Occupational Therapy Program is to provide students with a strong foundation in clinical reasoning, knowledge, and skills to become competent occupational therapists who improve the health of individuals and communities. Academic and professional citizenship of students is cultivated through mentorship in scholarly activities.


Our faculty are highly dedicated educators committed to quality teaching, research, clinical practice, and the profession of occupational therapy. As clinicians with years of experience in a variety of settings, we plan relevant learning experiences to prepare students to become competent practitioners. The curriculum is designed to involve the learner as an active participant in the essential knowledge, skills, behaviors and attitudes necessary for entry-level occupational therapy practice.

The faculty take pride in being accessible to our students in order to assist them in their learning. The concept of the seamless classroom whereby students continue their learning outside the walls of the classroom is a reality in our program. To promote the students’ professional development, the students have participated in assessing clients in the community, designing community enhancement projects, and collaborating with faculty, area clinicians, and local agencies to synthesize academic and clinical learning.
