Concordia University Chicago offers an intensive pre-occupational therapy program that prepares you for success in occupational therapy graduate work, which can lead to your degree in the discipline.

Pre-Occupational Therapy Program and Degree Overview

At Concordia-Chicago, you will earn a bachelor of arts in natural science with a pre-occupational therapy emphasis.

Upon graduation, you are prepared to apply for a master’s level occupational therapy program at another institution.

By completing your undergraduate work at CUC, you will benefit from small class sizes providing personalized, one-on-one instruction from expert faculty. Instead of sitting in a crowded lecture hall, you will be working closely with your classmates and professors on a variety of topics and projects. Your professors are also accessible outside the classroom to provide additional guidance and discussion.

Pre-Occupational Career Opportunities

In addition to rigorous departmental offerings, Concordia-Chicago science students participate in consortium-type seminars and course experiences through the Associated Colleges of the Chicago Area (ACCA).

ACCA is an association of 15 liberal arts universities and strives to promote collegiate education in the sciences through the collaboration of member colleges and government laboratories. Because of CUC’s close proximity to Chicago, there are countless opportunities for professional and academic experiences out of the classroom, including world-class museums and research institutions.
