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


Introducing the Post-Professional Online Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy degree program, the first online degree program to ever be offered by the USC 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 will be delivered 100% online, there will be no on-campus requirements for students to graduate. However, students will be offered opportunities to participate in on-campus events including orientation and graduation. For online students living outside the United States, we will offer a U.S. clinical experience that will fulfill your elective requirements by giving you exposure to occupational therapy practice in the U.S. under the mentorship of faculty and on-site supervisors.

The Online Master’s program will be designed for the individual who is a certified or board eligible occupational therapist, or an international therapist who has graduated from a program approved by the World Federation of Occupational Therapy® (WFOT). If you have a bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than occupational therapy, please see information about our Two-Year Master’s program.

Earn your advanced degree in occupational therapy and:

  • Immerse yourself in a state-of-the-art technological experience
  • 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
  • Experience small class sizes packed with discussion and live face-time with faculty

Please note, enrollment in the Post-Professional Online Master’s program will begin in fall 2015.
