Why Study OT at Quinnipiac?

OT students discussing an issue

In five and a half years of study, we'll prepare you for the diverse practice of occupational therapy with a variety of learning experiences in the classroom, field and laboratory. In our fully accredited program:

  • You'll work side by side with academic and clinical faculty who will help you take textbook theory and put it into real practice.
  • Our small class sizes allow for more direct student-professor interaction. You'll find a faculty-to-student ratio of 1:25 in classes and 1:10 in labs. The groups are even smaller in our problem-based learning groups. And you'll have close supervision in the Fieldwork I experience.
  • You'll learn through a variety of effective teaching methods.
  • Our developmental-humanistic approach is designed to cultivate learning while stimulating creative and critical reasoning to foster openness to new concepts and evolving models of practice.

Our students learn and practice their skills in outstanding new facilities on our North Haven Campus. Housed within the Center for Medicine, Nursing, and Health Sciences, the School of Health Sciences building features 24 teaching laboratories, including an orthopedics lab, a rehabilitative sciences lab, a clinical skills lab, an intensive care unit, a health assessment lab, a physical exam suite, a physical diagnostics lab, a motion analysis lab and other special amenities that set it apart from other universities offering health sciences programs.
