This entry-level graduate degree prepares students to become competent and caring occupational therapists.
Occupational Therapy is the art and science of directing an individual’s participation in everyday activities to restore, reinforce and enhance performance, facilitate learning of skills and functions essential for adaptation and productivity, diminish or correct pathology, and promote and maintain health. Its fundamental concern is the capacity, throughout the life span, to perform with satisfaction to self and others those tasks and roles essential to productive living and to the mastery of self and the environment.
The mission of the Department of Occupational Therapy is to provide education designed to prepare competent and effective occupational therapists skilled at meeting the demands of diverse environments and rapidly changing service delivery systems. The program seeks to develop therapists who possess foundation skills in the principles of the occupational therapy profession and the ability to integrate knowledge into practice while using the critical thinking and reflective abilities necessary to address the multiple roles of practitioner, consultant, educator, manager, researcher and advocate within diverse service delivery systems.
The program’s purpose is to develop graduates that are compassionate and dedicated to implementing contextually relevant occupation-based services that promote and enhance the health, participation and quality of life for individuals and populations.
