Curriculum Guides for OT Students

Below you will find the curriculum guide, or course sequences, for OT students who enter in the program as Dual Degree students and as M.S. students. The sequences are identical except for the course numbers (3000/4000 level versus 5000/6000 level courses). This denotes that the Dual Degree entry students are still considered “undergraduate students,” as their first year in the Occupational Therapy program is essentially their senior year of their bachelors degree. However, Dual Degree and Masters students will be in the same classes.
