Make daily life better for others.

Earning a Master of Science in occupational therapy at ACU can lead to a rewarding career. You will help individuals whose ability to cope with the activities of daily living are impaired by physical illness or injury, congenital or developmental disability, or the aging process. In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations) in all of their environments—home, work, school, community.

More on Fieldwork Experiences

Fieldwork experiences are required by ACOTE as part of the academic education and training process to become an occupational therapist. Fieldwork consists of two phases:

  • Fieldwork Level 1 is scheduled at the completion of the first semester of occupational therapy school. Level 1 fieldwork can be performed in many different occupational therapy settings, and generally allows the students “real world” experiences under the direction of a licensed occupational therapist. It is a reflection of the semester teachings and may be completed in a variety of settings including traditional settings as well as emerging practice and community-based areas.
  • Level 2 experiences generally consist of two 12-week assignments at various occupational therapy settings under the direct supervision of an occupational therapist. The fieldwork educator must be a practicing occupational therapist with at least one year of clinical experience and follow AOTA guidelines for meeting particular milestones to pass the Level 2 fieldwork experiences
