​Weekend Programs

The University of Findlay offers two, unique weekend programs for professionals interested in pursuing a doctorate of physical therapy or a master's of occupational therapy.


The weekend format allows adults with busy lives, jobs and families to pursue a graduate degree. Courses are scheduled on alternate weeks and run for six weekends, primarily fall through spring.  Some courses have an online ​component requiring less time on campus. The unique structure of this program has made it possible for students from other states to commute and complete their degree.

The Weekend Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program

The weekend program is specifically designed for current Physical Therapist Assistants (PTA) with a bachelor's degree to earn a doctorate of physical therapy (DPT) degree. Students attend our weekend college every other weekend for a period of three years to complete the program. A maximum of 36 students are admitted into a cohort to  begin the program each January.​​ Click here for more information.​

The Weekend Master's of Occupational Therapy Program

The weekend program is designed for the adult learner, preferably with health care experience, who wants to pursue a graduate degree in occupational therapy. Students attend our weekend college every other weekend for a period of three years to complete the program.  A maximum of 30 students are admitted into a cohort to begin the program each summer. To apply,  a student must  complete all pre-professional requirements and already have a bachelor's degree. Click here for more information.​

A student who does not have a bachelor’s degree is encouraged to enroll in The University of Findlay’s online degree completion program before applying to the professional portion of the program.
