The post-professional education is offered to occupational therapists who wish to learn advanced theoretical, practice, and research skills. The 33 semester hour program guides the student through four specific domains:
- specialty practice application;
- research methodology; and
- a project or thesis.
Elective coursework from related departments may be approved for degree requirements. Each student meets individually with a graduate advisor and the director of the post-professional program to design a plan of study.
Graduates of the program may use this degree to enter specialized areas of practice, to assume leadership positions within the profession, or to prepare for doctoral-level study.
