Degrees and Certifications
Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) (Doctorate)
Boston University Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences now offers a post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program exclusively in a distance learning format. This innovative program allows students to earn their doctorate without disrupting their careers or relocating their families. Now a doctoral level education is readily accessible to occupational therapists who wish to shape the future of our profession and healthcare. This program will prepare skilled occupational therapists to take on leadership roles in developing and testing innovative responses to healthcare needs related to occupational performance and societal participation. The post-professional OTD will develop visionary practitioners who have the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct critical evaluation of theory and evidence in their area of practice, to identify gaps or shortcomings in current intervention methods and programs, and to design innovative responses to the identified needs.
Online Undergraduate Degree Completion (Bachelor Degree)
This Undergraduate Degree Completion Program is a 16-course program designed for highly motivated individuals who have completed approximately half of their undergraduate work and seek to finish their bachelor's degree. Students can join the program at any of the six starting dates during the year (January, March, May, July, September, and November), and complete their studies within 30 months. The program is totally online so you are never required to attend an on-campus class. You may want to travel to Boston for graduation ceremonies, but that is entirely up to you.
