Dominican offers a five-year program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Health Science and the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy with a transfer option.

Requirements  |  Course Sequence |   Master's Theses   |    Community Practice Labs   |    Fieldwork  

Students  will complete most of their general education and all of the pre-OT admission requirements during the first two years of college (lower division courses), and begin a focused group of occupational therapy courses in their junior year.

All students complete a faculty-directed integrative capstone experience, which is research, program development, or clinically focused.

"I recently had two job offers, and accepted one with a geriatric transitional care facility in San Luis Obispo. One great thing is that I met my employer at the Dominican Career Fair. Having access to OT opportunities at the fair was important and successful for me!"

—Amanda Harness, Class of 2010
