TWU adds clinical doctor of occupational therapy degree


DENTON/DALLAS/HOUSTON— Texas Woman’s University has added a clinical doctor of occupational therapy to its list of degree programs.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board granted TWU the authority to offer the doctor of occupational therapy (OTD) degree on April 24. TWU currently is accepting enrollment for the Fall 2014 semester. The program will be taught in a hybrid format, with most of the instruction online and one or two on-campus visits per semester.

The new OTD is a part-time program designed for working professionals. The curriculum consists of core coursework and individually mentored professional development in an area of specialization.

“The clinical doctorate is becoming the entry-level degree into the occupational therapy profession,” said Dr. Diane Brown, program coordinator. “Our program provides the opportunity to work closely with a mentor who has expertise in the student’s area of specialization and who will help the student set a career path in that area.”

For more information on the TWU OTD program, contact Dr. Brown at or (940) 898-2824.
