Earning a Master of Science in occupational therapy at ACU can lead to a rewarding career. You will help individuals whose ability to cope with the activities of daily living are impaired by physical illness or injury, congenital or developmental disability, or the aging process. In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations) in all of their environments – home, work, school, community.
The M.S. in occupational therapy, consisting of both classroom instruction and fieldwork, is designed to prepare you to sit for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) for the practice of occupational therapy. After passing the NBCOT exam, you may apply for licensure in the state in which you intend to practice.
