The 75-credit Master of Science in Occupational Therapy at Shenandoah University is delivered in a flexible, hybrid format, with over 50% of the content delivered online.


Students attend classes on campus one day per week and fieldwork experiences are completed on non-campus days and during normal working hours. Additionally, students are expected to engage in hands-on experiences in their home communities as directed by faculty. 

The learning model requires students to think critically and act professionally in independent, interpersonal and community-based problem-solving experiences. Graduates of this program enter the field as skilled and compassionate occupational therapists, serving a diverse range of patient populations in a variety of health care and community-based settings.

Shenandoah University’s graduate program in Occupational Therapy prepares you to help clients reach their greatest level of quality of life and independence by serving as a caring and effective occupational therapist.  Close mentorship with faculty, combined with the program’s small class sizes and practical learning experiences, prepare you to enter the field as a professional dedicated to service, ethics, and leadership.
