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