EKU Named Top 10 Among Best Online Colleges for a Doctoral in Occupational Therapy

Eastern Kentucky University is among the Top 10 best colleges offering an online doctorate in occupational therapy. The EKU Online OTD program took the number 6 spot in “2018 Best Online Colleges for a Doctoral in Occupational Therapy.”

Dr. Dana Howell, coordinator of the online program, credits both committed faculty and talented graduates for the program’s success. “Our program offers occupational therapists a quality education provided by outstanding faculty,” said Dana Howell, professor and coordinator of the online program.

“Occupational therapists who have enrolled in our program have gone on to become tenure-track faculty members, fieldwork coordinators, and adjunct faculty. Many have presented their work at regional and national conferences,” said Howell.

SR Education Group selected schools based on tuition and quality. EKU was recognized for offering students two options: the bachelor’s to OTD path and the master’s to OTD path. EKU’s tuition was found to be roughly half that of the average annual tuition of all the schools considered.

Academic strength was another factor in the organization’s methodology. It was calculated using entrance exam scores submitted to the National Center for Education Statistics.

Benefits of the EKU Online program include:

  • A 100% online program from a regionally accredited, respected brick-and-mortar institution
  • Expert faculty who work with some of the most influential members of the field
  • Classes for working professionals with instructors who are committed to your personal and academic success
