Advance your knowledge and skills as an occupational therapist.

Are you an occupational therapist with a baccalaureate degree and a desire to advance your career? Are you currently working as an occupational therapist in another country and want to learn how to implement best practices? Pitt’s Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree is just what you need to move forward with confidence.

This 30-credit post-professional MS in Occupational Therapy program builds on your experience but enables you to pursue particular areas of interest. You may choose specific clinical practice areas such as children and youth, rehabilitation and disability, or work and industry. Or you may opt for special training in areas such as management, education, evidence-based practice or health and disability policy.

Three preceptorships, one during each term, enable you to upgrade your clinical skills under the direction of faculty and clinical mentors, and prepare you for advances in the career you already love.
