College of Rehabilitative Sciences

The College of Rehabilitative Sciences offers graduate degrees in occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and physical therapy. The curricula mirror the University’s philosophy that the future professionals in these career fields should be educated in an interprofessional environment to the extent possible. The intent of this philosophy is for graduates in these majors to gain an understanding and appreciation of each other’s scope of practice.

The College of Rehabilitative Sciences strives to offer the highest quality online courses and classroom instruction while taking pride in making the entire educational experience accessible and interactive for students. The blended learning approach allows students to have a vast range of learning techniques at their fingertips. All online courses are developed with an in-depth understanding of the educational needs of students—how they will best retain the information provided to them and the ease of accessibility to key University support services and staff to offer assistance along the way. Lab classes are taught in a hands-on setting, while some portions of the course content are presented through a variety of interactive distance activities and augmented by in-class discussions. Clinical experiences, practica, and fieldwork experiences occur at sites located in the United States and, on a limited basis, internationally.
