Master of Occupational Therapy

UF's master of occupational therapy offers options in three different areas:

  1. Traditional program (with direct freshman-admission option)

  2. Weekend program​

  3. Transfer students​


Traditional Program

​The University of Findlay’s traditional program is a five-and-one-half-year program with two years of pre-professional requirements and three years of professional course work, plus six months of fieldwork. After the fourth year, students receive a bachelor of science degree in health studies with a master of occupational therapy awarded at the end of the program. Read more about the traditional program.

 

Direct Freshman Admission

The University of Findlay offers direct freshman admission. Students with a 3.5 GPA (3.5 on a 4.0 scale) or higher, and a 25 ACT (1700 SAT) score may be eligible for direct freshman admission. A completed application to The University of Findlay must be postmarked by Jan. 31 to be considered for the direct freshman-admissions option. Students who do not meet the requirements above may apply for admissions to the professional graduate program during their sophomore year of college.


Weekend Program

You can earn a master of occupational therapy degree in three years. The weekend program meets six times per semester year-round on Fridays and Saturdays. Candidates must have completed a bachelor's degree. Read more about the weekend program.


Transfer Students

​The University of Findlay’s traditional occupational therapy program is offered in a combined bachelor’s/masters format. It is not a post baccalaureate program where the student receives a bachelor’s degree in another subject and then applies to graduate school. Our program provides 3.5 years of professional coursework; two years at the undergraduate level and 1.5 years at the graduate level. Read more about transferring to UF.
