• Occupational Therapy

    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.

    In addition to our Bachelor of Science in Occupational Studies program, we offer a high-quality graduate program that leads to the Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) degree. As a BSOS undergraduate, you may have the opportunity to apply for conditional entry into the MOT Program the summer before your senior year. Our combined Bachelor of Science in Occupational Studies and Master of Occupational Therapy Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education.
