Occupational Therapy Assistant Department

The Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) Program provides students with a professional foundation that integrates technical level occupational therapy theory with the knowledge and skills required for practice in diverse health care settings. The broad based curriculum design is a systematic process of personal and professional development that embraces the individual student's personal vision, seeks to develop leadership qualities, and instills a commitment of service to the profession and to the community. The program recognizes the dynamic nature of occupational therapy practice and, along with the development of entry-level competence, fosters lifelong education for continued competency in ever changing roles of the occupational therapy assistant.

Please access the OTA Program web page linked to this site for specific information related to the program and options of study available within the program, along with admission criteria, application packets and advising information.
