Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD)

The CSU recently received legislative authority to offer the Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD), as that will soon become the primary degree for entry into the profession. Currently, the CSU has two Master of Science degree programs in Occupational Therapy: CSU Dominguez Hills and San José State University.

The OTD degree will be focused on preparing occupational therapists to provide health care services and will be consistent with the standards for accreditation set forth by the appropriate accrediting body.

We anticipate offering our OTD programs no sooner than Fall 2021. For additional information, please contact CSU Dominguez Hills and/or San José State University​.
