The job outlook for the occupational therapy profession is extremely positive. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects OT positions to grow 12 percent by 2032, much faster than the average for all occupations, mainly due to the increasing number of elderly people and school-aged children who require these services. Graduates of St. Scholastica’s Occupational Therapy Program are highly regarded; many receive job offers from the sites where they completed their fieldwork.
The salary prospects for occupational therapists are equally good. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the 2022 median salary for OTs as $93,180. Many St. Scholastica graduates work in Duluth and the surrounding areas, although positions are available in other parts of the region and country.
