At Puget Sound we believe that the study of occupational therapy is enhanced by the liberal arts emphasis of the university. Nurtured in a collaborative yet academically rigorous environment, our students learn to think critically and analytically, develop professional values and goals, and become intellectually autonomous. Students benefit from innovative project opportunities, comprehensive fieldwork experiences, and a curriculum designed to develop professional reasoning skills, build exceptional documentation skills, and prepare them to exceed the minimum requirements for entry level practice.
Occupational therapy students at Puget Sound become insightful evaluators and capable professionals with extensive hands-on client interaction and research experience. Our graduates pursue distinguished careers locally and around the world as expert clinicians, school system consultants, faculty members, successful private practitioners, clinic managers, and leaders of professional organizations.
We offer three programs:
- Entry-level Master's Program (MSOT)
- Entry-level Doctorate Program (OTD)
- Post-professional Doctorate program (DrOT)
offered every 2-3 years
