The M.Sc.A. is a course-based program consisting of two academic years of full-time study and related practical work followed by a summer internship (82 credits in total).
The frontiers of knowledge are expanding so rapidly that it is impossible to include everything a graduate might need to know in the future. Therefore, we firmly believe that a program of training in the health professions must concentrate on the basic sciences and competencies underlying professional practice. Through active participation in the learning process, we are able to best prepare students as creative professionals, ready to become the leaders of the future.
To prepare students as creative professionals, the program emphasizes:
- the understanding of fundamental principles and theories
- present and potential clinical applications
- specific techniques for assessment and intervention
- active participation in the learning process.
