The Rehabilitation Science program of Concordia University Wisconsin is the first step in pursuing your career in occupational or physical therapy.


Delivering the best care–physically, mentally and spiritually

You’ll benefit from a broad-based education that meets the prerequisites for entering our Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT). For those of you who already have a particular area interest, you can start early! During your undergraduate studies, you can select elective courses focusing on pediatrics or gerontology.

You are at the beginning of your university education! That is pretty exciting. Are you planning even further ahead for future graduate studies? Yes? The Rehabilitation Science program of Concordia University Wisconsin is going to get you ready for a Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) or Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT). By starting here, you get the skills and knowledge that will serve you later on. Not quite sure if graduate school is for you, but you’d like options? Rehabilitation science is useful in and of itself. It is broad enough to be applicable in plenty of medical and health careers, while focusing on healing and strengthening the human body. We’ll give you a foundation that you can build on whichever way you choose.

In order to provide efficient, quality learning, you can apply for CUW’s MOT program during your sophomore year, and begin the graduate coursework your junior year. What does that ultimately mean for you? By combining the two programs, you will graduate with a bachelor and master’s in 4 ½ years! Opting for the bachelor alone means you’ll be finished in 3 ½ years. Our faculty and staff will help you choose the path that best suits your individual goals and needs.

In addition, there is an accelerated DPT admission option for qualified students. This option allows students to complete the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 6 rather than 7 years. The option is open to students who matriculate as freshman and take all their science prerequisite coursework at Concordia University. If you decide to pursue admission through the accelerated process you will receive a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Science following completion of your fourth year of academic study at Concordia University.

What to expect

Through this program you’ll benefit from a scientific background, ethical training in medicine, and a thorough basis in the human body. Your curriculum includes advanced anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, human development over a lifetime, and mechanical principles that affect the human body. As a Christian university, we recognize and encourage a life-affirming view of humans at all stages of life. One final “housekeeping” note: You will be required to take a few classes during winterim and summer sessions in order to graduate on schedule. So, pack your sunscreen and gloves to enjoy all the seasons right outside of Milwaukee.
