Welcome to NYU’s Department of Occupational Therapy! Since 1940 we have been committed to educating clinical and academic leaders in the field of occupational therapy. We are ranked in the top 10 of OT programs in the country and strive to offer a dynamic, student centered, experiential learning environment from top faculty in their respective fields.
Our strong community relationships within such a diverse city, offer our entry-level professional Masters students (MS) an opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills they need to become an OT with interprofessional experiences across a wide range of practice areas. Our post-professional Masters (MA) students often bring their international experiences, reflecting the global mission of NYU to the classroom, as they earn an advanced degree. Our PhD in OT was the first in the nation and has produced scholars and academics that can be found at leading Universities throughout the US and abroad.
Our faculty is a diverse group bringing their strengths and talents to the classroom, research, and their scholarship and are always available to our students. I invite you to look around our website at our professional and post-professional programs; check out the exciting and innovative endeavors in which our faculty engage. As you tour our site, please feel free to send your questions or comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
