Occupational Science BS/Occupational Therapy MS

Our combined BS/MS program allows students to enter the field as occupational therapists in five years while studying at the Flagship University of the SUNY system. In the first two years, a liberal arts education allows flexibility to meet student interests while preparing for study in the professional program. Once in the OT professional program, students develop clinical evaluation and intervention skills to work with individuals of all ages with physical, psychosocial, and cognitive challenges to work toward improving their health and function.  In addition, students design, develop, implement, analyze and present group research projects under the mentorship of seasoned faculty. OT students also benefit from interprofessional activities with students across the academic health center.

We prepare students for variety of settings including medical, home care, community, vocational, educational and underserved settings that do not currently have OT. The strength of our program is evidenced by our NBCOT pass rate which has been at 100% within one year of graduation for several years.
