Rockhurst University’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies grants the Doctor of Physical Therapy, Master of Education, Master of Occupational Therapy, and Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders degrees. Close faculty-student interaction and mentoring are hallmarks of a Rockhurst University graduate experience.

The Master of Education program provides the necessary professional education coursework to meet initial teacher certification requirements in elementary and secondary education in the state of Missouri.

In the Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Communication Sciences and Disorders Programs, opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions between students and faculty occur throughout the curricula. An interdisciplinary perspective strengthens understanding and collaboration among future colleagues in these health science professions. These programs also provide opportunities for students to participate in collaborative service projects that enable faculty, students, and other members of the Rockhurst community to team with community agencies, fulfilling the institution’s mission in providing leadership in service to others.
