Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy: The Online Program for Therapists

Introducing the Post-Professional Online Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy, the first online degree program offered by the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy!

Earn your post-professional master’s degree in occupational therapy by combining the quality and excellence of a USC education with the convenience and flexibility of an online format. Because our Post-Professional Online Master’s degree program is delivered 100% online, there is no on-campus attendance requirements in order for students to graduate.

Our Online Post-Professional Master’s program is designed for occupational therapists who have graduated from a baccalaureate degree program in occupational therapy with a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 from an accredited college or university or World Federation of Occupational Therapy® (WFOT) approved program. If you have a bachelor’s degree in any discipline other than occupational therapy, please see information about our entry-level master’s degree program.

Earn your advanced degree in occupational therapy and:

  • Experience small class sizes packed with discussion and live face-time with faculty
  • Gain access to USC’s globally-renowned faculty
  • Study at your own pace
  • Continue working at your current place of employment
  • Avoid the costs and inconveniences of geographical relocation
