We offer a 60 credit two year full-time weekend Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (OT) at Mercy College New York with classes scheduled every other weekend. The program incorporates a variety of learning methods including a mixture of lecture, discussion, small group problem solving, hands-on experiences, problem based learning (PBL) and our innovative "learning by doing" philosophy.
Our faculty is comprised of occupational therapy practitioners with various specializations, providing Mercy students with first-rate, well rounded instruction.
Most faculty members have published within the field and are nationally recognized for their expertise. Students with a bachelor's degree and the required prerequisite courses can directly enter into the MS degree program. Students without a bachelor's degree can apply for a BS in Health Sciences which includes prerequisites or pre-professional occupational therapy courses. Students can apply up to one year in advance of entry into the program.
Graduates apply for licensure and entry level work. From there you’ll be working in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, regional schools and elsewhere, with people with spinal cord injuries, cancer, strokes, autism, cerebral palsy or developmental problems, and many other conditions and illnesses.
Many of our alumni hold leadership roles where they work, and have returned to the OT program as:
- PBL facilitators
- teaching associates
- guest lecturers
- lab assistants.
