Course is fantastic, containing essential knowledge and practice skills that will be required of me when I complete my course and become a prefoessional OT. Can not recommend WSU Bachelor of Occupational Therapy highly enough. Will provide me with the perfect foundation for creating my own professional identity.

The study has been great I just wish there was more theory information regarding specific occupational therapy interventions which would be helpful for placement and future career opportunities.
