Master of Occupational Therapy
Originally a division within the School of Rehabilitation Sciences, the Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy emerged in July 2007. The department offers a wide array of educational and research opportunities, including an entry to practice graduate program: Master of Occupational Therapy, MOT; graduate research programs: MSc and PhD; and post-professional online: Master of rehabilitation science, MRSc and certificate programs.
Our mission is to “Create, inspire and uphold a scholarly community that contributes to the health of individuals and communities through research on occupation and education programs for occupational therapy students, health professionals, and scientists.” Through the continued support of our academic, clinical, student, and alumni community we hope to realize our vision of “health and participation for all.”
