NOTE: The Occupational Therapy Department is not accepting applications for the Professional Entry-Level Master's Program for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please contact Dr. Michelle Bradshaw or Patricia Condon for further information.

Ithaca College has had a freshman entry combined Bachelor/Master’s program for 15 years and enjoys a great reputation. In 2010, Ithaca College received accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) to begin our new Professional Entry-Level Master's in Occupational Therapy program. The program has also received New York State Department of Education approval and admitted our first class in May 2010.

Please visit the graduate admission page for information on current tuition expenses. The program consists of 90 credits and will prepare students to sit for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT)

Each year the department awards a small number of graduate assistantships to select Professional Entry-Level students. Graduate assistantships are competitive and offer both scholarship funding and a taxable salary. Students who are awarded graduate assistantships work with faculty and staff on scholarly, instructional, and administrative tasks depending on departmental needs. Students applying for graduate assistantships are required to submit two additional letters of recommendation with their application.
