Students

Occupational Therapy students bring energy and excellence to the program. The wealth of experience and diversity of backgrounds the Occupational Therapy students bring to the program creates a dynamic and enriching academic community. The Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) further enriches the program by providing educational, professional and social opportunities for Occupational Therapy students and the chance to develop leadership skills. Not surprisingly, SJSU graduates have earned a reputation as highly accomplished clinicians and leaders in Occupational Therapy.

The Department of Occupational Therapy has one area of study, the Entry-Level Master of Science Degree Program, which allows the student to expand their education and enhance their skills as an occupational therapist. (Note: The Online Post-Professional Master's Degree program is no longer offered by the department of Occupational Therapy here at San Jose State University. Please visit the AOTA website to view other post-professional programs.)

Below are several student links that will assist in directing students throughout the website and hopefully answer any questions they may have about the degree. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact the OT department at (408) 924-3070.
