Restore quality of life with compassion.
As a student in the Occupational Therapy Department at Worcester State University, you will develop into a compassionate practitioner who is well versed in helping people of all ages build or regain the skills they need to live independently. In class, you’ll learn the proper way to assist individuals who, owing to illness, injury, or developmental or psychological impairment, require specialized guidance to acquire the capabilities to maximize their quality of life.
Beyond the classroom, you’ll gain practical experience through a range of fieldwork and community experiences at local organizations including hospitals, mental health facilities, and outpatient clinics. In the field, you’ll work alongside licensed, registered occupational therapists—many are graduates of our program.
Our Bachelor of Science in Occupational Studies leads into the Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) following a specific Program of Study. The estimated cost of attendance for traditional students participating in these programs is outlined for MA, New England, and out-of-state residents. Our Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) page provides the outcome data for the MOT program.
