Accelerated Master’s to Professional Doctorate of Occupational Therapy (OTD)

Through our Accelerated Master’s to Professional OTD degree program, you can earn an OTD degree in occupational therapy with just one additional year instead of the traditional two years. You will apply to our Entry-Level Professional Master’s Degree program if your bachelor’s degree is in a field other than occupational therapy, or our Post-Professional Master’s Degree program if you are an occupational therapist or have your bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy. 

Students currently enrolled in a USC Chan master’s program may be eligible for expedited OTD admissions; otherwise, please review our standard admissions process.
