The University is continuing to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on future travel. This page will be updated with OT global course offerings when these options are available.
The Department of Occupational Therapy offers a rotating 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 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.
