Curriculum

(for students entering 2014-15 academic year)

The master’s level OT curriculum is a combination of weekend classes and off-campus learning activities delivered on-line between class meetings. The curriculum is offered over a 12-month calendar beginning in September and there is a mandatory weekend orientation during the first weekend of August prior to the start of the academic year.

Classes generally meet eight weekends each semester (unless indicated otherwise):
Friday 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM
