Our Department

Welcome to the Department of Occupational Therapy, a dynamic place to learn, work and grow. We are very proud that:

  • U.S. News and World Report ranks us among the Top 10 occupational therapy programs in the nation;
  • Colorado State University has recognized us as a Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence since 2003; and
  • The Colorado Commission of Higher Education has designated us a Program of Excellence.

We are proud to be home to many nationally recognized programs of research, community outreach and practice, which you can learn about from our Centers and Research webpage. These programs enrich students’ learning experiences; they build new understandings of human performance and occupational participation; and they help to meet the occupational needs of people who face significant daily living challenges.   

Our Department offers two outstanding entry-level professional degree programs: the Master of Occupational Therapy (M.OT) and the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (M.S).

In addition, we are very pleased to announce that the Department now offers an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Occupation and Rehabilitation Science, as of fall of 2013.

The Department of Occupational Therapy is a dynamic, inclusive, forward-looking and innovative academic home! Please explore our Website and also consider visiting to learn more about who we are and what we care deeply about in our work.
