University of Charleston

The University of Charleston OTA program has recently expanded to a new, seperate location on UC's main campus in Charleston. The new location offers a more traditional college experience, offering housing and meal plans. Our inaugaral class is small, with 3 students, but we value quality over quantity. Two new faculty members join the Charleston OTA program, Coty Dennler, COTA/L, RBA, as AFWC and Traci Turley, M.S., OTR/L as Site Coordinator. 

In 2018 the founding director transitioned to retirement, Kay Blose OTR/L and Jackie Hurt, MA, BS, COTA/L became the new program director. She is a graduate of the program and a long standing faculty member of 16 years. Most recently, Kate Bennett, B.S., COTA/L, joined UC OTA Beckley as a faculty member and AFWC. 

We are excited to continue to offer quality occupational therapy education with a new location. Stay tuned for more exciting news from UC coming soon!!
