Our Program

The School of Occupational Therapy at the University of Puget Sound offers high quality educational opportunities at the master's level for individuals seeking to become an occupational therapist (entry level). Our entry level program is a two-and-one-half year, master's level course of study for entry into the profession.

Puget Sound's program combines the excellence of a dedicated faculty with an on-campus clinic that gives students a unique learning environment for putting theory and skills into practice. Students evaluate and treat clients under the supervision of expert community clinicians. Students also experience rigorous research and program development opportunities.

Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT), 12 South Summit Avenue Suite 100, Gaithersburg, MD 20877-4150, telephone: 301.990.7979, email: info@nbcot.org. After successful completion of the exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). Most states require licensure in order to practice, and state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT certification examination. (Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or obtain a state license.)
