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.
