Carroll University has partnered with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to create a 2+3 program for students interested in pursuing a career in occupational therapy. The student's first two years will be spent at Carroll University taking Liberal Studies Program, General Education and prerequisite courses. Occasional concurrent enrollment in a course at UW-M is necessary. The last three years are spent at UWM.
Occupational therapy is a profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation. Occupational therapy is practiced in a wide range of settings, including hospitals, health centers, homes, workplaces, schools, reform institutions and housing for seniors.
The 2+3 program between Carroll University and UWM allows the student to pursue a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. Interested students should contact Carroll University's 2+2 Health Sciences adviser for more information.
