Our department prepares you for today's world, tomorrow's challenges and future careers. We help you master fundamental academic abilities, personal and social development, and the philosophical values of occupational therapy (OT).
Our programs emphasize the core philosophy of Clarkson University, with four components serving as common threads through multiple courses:
- learn to communicate effectively,
- develop an appreciation for diversity in both working and living environments,
- recognize the importance of personal, societal, and professional ethics, and
- understand how science and technology can be used to serve humanity.
Each of these components is introduced early in the curriculum and reinforced in subsequent courses. The curriculum emphasizes the importance of collaboration during the learning experience; since OT's do not work in isolation, we believe they should not learn in isolation either.
