Occupational Therapy, MS
The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program is a 70-credit, full-time learning program, completed over two years with face-to-face meetings on weekends, in Albany, NY. Upon successful completion, program graduates are eligible to sit for the occupational therapy national certification exam, through the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. Passing the certification exam allows graduates to apply for occupational therapy licenses in the states of their choosing.
Occupational therapy is a growing profession, serving people of all ages and backgrounds. Occupational therapists work in schools, hospitals, skilled nursing, other rehab settings and the community. Maria’s program is designed to emphasize opportunity education and to benefit under-served populations with an emphasis on cultural awareness, wellness and community integration. Many students are able to work part-time while in the program.
We welcome diversity.
In Maria’s MSOT program, we welcome and encourage applicants from a diversity of backgrounds and walks-of-life. We encourage applications from adult and non-traditional learners, from second career individuals and those with undergraduate degrees outside of those typically found in occupational therapy. These backgrounds can include but are not limited to the visual and performing arts, philosophy and education, theology and or philosophy, and many other disciplines.
