Bachelor’s to Master’s
USC Chan is in the process of transitioning from an entry-level master’s program to an entry-level Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) program. This change could impact students as early as the bachelor’s class of 2023. In the event that the Division moves to an entry-level OTD program while you are completing your bachelor’s degree, in order to remain in the OT program at USC you would will need to apply to and complete the OTD program following completion of your bachelor’s degree.
We are no longer offering an undergraduate transfer entry option to our Bachelor’s to Master’s occupational therapy program. We encourage you to attain your bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in a field of your choice, and plan to apply to our two-year Entry Level Master’s degree program. We will look forward to working with you and assisting you through that process. Also, feel free to sign up to attend an Admission Information Session.
