Resolution Number

2014-2015_03

Abstract

The College at Brockport proposes to add an entry-level Master of Science in Occupational Therapy to its curricular offerings. The program would be housed in the School of Health and Human Performance along with existing programs in kinesiology, health science, nursing, and recreation. The purpose of the program would be to prepare students for licensure and employment in the field of occupational therapy in Western New York and beyond. Creation of the program would be consistent with strategic planning initiatives both on campus and at System Administration. Furthermore, the program would address expected escalating needs for occupational therapists driven, at least in part, by an aging population. The proposed program includes 83 credits of coursework taken over a two-year period. It is anticipated that the program would be accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education.
