About

A full-time, four-semester program, the Master of Science (MS) degree program in Orientation and Mobility (O&M) at Salus University typically begins in January, although it is possible for a student to begin in the fall semester with prior approval from the program director.

Overview

Key Features

The majority of this Orientation and Mobility program’s curriculum at Salus University is taught online, with a 10-week summer residency and one additional week in the fall on campus. Founded on evidence- based practice, the O&M coursework is sequentially designed and integrated to ensure that a student’s necessary skills are developed prior to entry into fieldwork off-campus.

Coursework prepares students to work effectively with individuals who have low vision, as well as those who are blind, and to work across generations. Students in the O&M program learn the importance of an interprofessional approach to the provision of comprehensive services. This program provides the coursework and supervised fieldwork experiences required for certification by the Academy for the Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals (ACVREP).
