About the Department of Occupational Therapy

The University of New Hampshire Occupational Therapy program was initiated in 1942 as a major program offered by the Art Department of the College of Liberal Arts. It was first accredited by the American Occupational Therapy Association and the American Medical Association in 1945 when it graduated its first student.

In July 1963, led by Prof. Marguerite Abbott, the program attained the status of a department within the College of Liberal Arts and in 1963-64 joined the Biological Sciences Division.

The School of Health Studies was organized in 1968-69 and the OT department started operation within this School in 1969-70.

In the summer of 1995, 120 OT alumnae returned to UNH to celebrated the 50th anniversary of the department.
