Occupational Therapy Post- Baccalaureate (BA/BS) Gannon University - Erie Campus

Occupational Therapy is a profession that works with a variety of individuals with disabilities in all stages of the human life cycle. Occupational therapists develop, teach and evaluate specific rehabilitation programs for each individual in an effort to help clients achieving health, well-being, and participation in meaningful activities. Occupational therapists work in all areas of health care, including hospitals, private practice, schools, long term care, mental health and community programs, home health care, business and industry, and consulting.

Opportunities for advancement are great, and after working only a short time, Occupational Therapy graduates may advance to become supervisors, clinical educators, case managers and ADA consultants. A master's degree is required in order to be eligible to take the national certification exam. The Federal Department of Labor outlook for Occupational Therapy is for it to grow "much faster than average" - that is, growing by more than 27% over the next 10 years. Many of our graduates have jobs prior to graduation and frequently select from multiple employment offers. The U.S. News and World Report (2016) identifies Occupational Therapy as one of "the best health careers" (#17/100) which should have strong growth over the next decade.
