Overview

Master of Science - Occupational Therapy

The Department of Occupational Therapy offers graduate work leading to a Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy (MScOT). The MScOT program is designed to address practice and theoretical issues within a broad range of settings.

Upon completion of their degree, students will be able to evaluate programs, participate in research, and critically appraise current assessment and intervention options.

An MScOT postprofessional stream for occupational therapists with a bachelor's entry level degree in occupational therapy provides clinicians with the research and leadership skills to enhance their abilities in various settings.

 An MScOT entry-level stream for students who hold an undergraduate degree in a variety of fields other than occupational therapy provides the academic and fieldwork education required for certification by provincial and national professional associations.
