Chicago State University established The Department of Occupational Therapy (OT) in 1982. It is the second oldest OT program in the State of Illinois. Our mission is to train a diverse student body and produce competent occupational therapists and prepare graduates with the skills to meet client needs within rapidly changing service delivery systems.


Occupational therapists are health professionals that provide service to those with impaired abilities. We offer a master degree in Occupational Therapy at Chicago State University. 


  • Occupational therapists work with people impacted by injury, illness, developmental problems or aging. Impairment may be physical, mental or cognitive. Practitioners deliver services in many different settings, ranging from private practice to hospitals. Job opportunities include roles as practitioners, consultants, educators, managers, researchers and advocates.
  • Employment of occupational therapists is projected to grow 17 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations.


The Occupational Therapy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).
