Undergrad-Graduate "4+1" Program

This program is offered at WMU's main campus in Kalamazoo for undergraduate and transfer students. This "4+1" program offers students an accelerated path to a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Health Services with a concentration in occupational therapy and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 4+1 program:
Our first deadline for the Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) program will be January 15, 2020. Application information is on our website.


Required courses for the 4+1 program fall into two broad categories:

  1. Undergraduate courses required for the B.S. in Interdisciplinary Health Services and courses in the undergrad O.T. concentration (listed here)
  2. Graduate courses toward an M.S. in Occupational Therapy (listed here)

Students will generally begin taking some graduate courses during their final undergraduate year, allowing for an accelerated path toward completing the master's degree.
