Seton Hall University offers an innovative dual degree program leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Social and Behavioral Sciences (SOBT) and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT). This six-year (3+3) program offers students an opportunity to begin their pre-professional education in a traditional liberal arts environment and complete their professional degree in an intensive curriculum that offers clinical internships.
The Occupational Therapy program is rigorous with high expectations for students' performance. During the 2012-2015 academic years, 78 students were admitted to the program and 70 (90%) of them completed the program. Occasionally, students choose to withdraw from the program for various reasons. Program graduates are eligible to take the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapist (NBCOT®).
