We offer a range of study abroad opportunities where students can delve into areas of occupational therapy like disability, sensory processing, and rehabilitation from a global perspective.
These courses are open to all NYU Steinhardt OT students with adviser approval. Graduate students from other departments are welcome to enroll with permission from the course instructor.
Additional information about application deadlines and tuition can be found on the Steinhardt Global Affairs website.
OT Study Abroad Stories
This year, Associate Professors Yael Goverover and Gerry Voelbel traveled to Israel with students to participate in a course entitled “Disability in a Global Context.”
We spoke with Francine Cacciola (MS '19) about her experience studying abroad in the United Kingdom.
Students explored and identified factors, including cultural factors and health beliefs, which may influence a community’s view of disability.
