Curriculum

The certificate of advanced graduate studies in occupational therapy consists of four, three credit courses. The first course emphasizes scholarly reading and writing and prepares students to conduct a peer review of writing in an area of their interest. Students will then choose from one of the two specialized tracks listed below before completing a final writing course that prepares them to submit an evidence-based manuscript for publication.

  • School-based practice
  • Teaching and learning in occupational therapy

Successful completion of this certificate will also serve as a bridge to pursue doctoral-level education in Quinnipiac's online Occupational Therapy Doctorate program.
