​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Program Description

As an occupational therapist, you’ll impact lives every day. You’ll help people with cognitive and physical disorders develop and maintain the skills necessary for daily life. With your coaching and assistance, people will overcome barriers to succeed in the work force and participate in day-to-day activities. At CMU, you’ll select a major of your choice while following the pre-occupational therapy program of study to prepare for graduate school. You’ll want to contact the Occupational Therapy adviser early in your first semester to help you choose your major and identify prerequisite course work.​​
