Course info


Earn two degrees in just five-and-a-half years and launch your career helping patients regain their physical, social, and emotional strength.

What You’ll Learn

You’ll spend three years studying how living organisms function, survive, adapt, and evolve, while working alongside professors on active research projects.

You’ll then apply to transition into the professional phase of the program for the remaining two-and-a-half years, where you’ll participate in faculty-led research initiatives across academic disciplines, including engineering, computer science, and sports medicine, and in areas such as hand therapy, pediatrics, concussion therapy, physical rehabilitation, and sports and fitness.

As part of our Occupational Therapy, M.S. program, you’ll explore how technology can advance the healthcare field. You’ll design and construct adaptive devices and equipment utilizing 3-D printers; use immersive and augmented virtual reality; learn about new power wheelchairs with state-of-the-art demonstrations from wheelchair users and vendors; and work with our brand-new driver simulator to learn how to assess people with disabilities’ readiness to return to operating vehicles.

You’ll gain critical real-world experience while giving back to society through multiple service-learning opportunities whether traveling abroad to meet with practitioners from places like Morocco and Costa Rica, or working in underrepresented communities with vulnerable populations right here at home. You’ll also be able to take advantage of various internship opportunities at leading organizations such as Northwell Health, the New York City Department of Education, and United Cerebral Palsy.
