Help people live a healthy and full life.

Our graduates work worldwide, helping people and communities overcome unique challenges to get the most out of everyday life activities. You'll learn to help children reach developmental milestones or manage their disability. You'll study how to assist older clients to return to their daily lives after a stroke or hip replacement. Or perhaps you will help people return to work following an accident.

As an occupational therapist, your skills will be invaluable as you work closely with individuals to assess their unique situation, determine goals and put together a plan for success.
