The Bachelor’s degree in Orthotics and Prosthetics is offered in partnership with Century College. Interested applicants should first enroll in and make progress toward graduation from the orthotics and prosthetics program at Century College before transferring to Concordia University, St. Paul.
Majoring in Orthotics and Prosthetics involves the study of how to design and fit orthopedic braces, artificial limbs, and other devices that improve the function and quality of life for individuals with disabilities. You will learn to effectively analyze, design and construct appropriate orthoses and prostheses and make sound ethical decisions surrounding their use. How is gait analysis conducted? What role can patient counseling play? What materials should be used in fabrication? You will gain knowledge and skills that are important for any career in orthotics and prosthetics as you complete 61 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Science degree.
