Concordia University, St. Paul’s Master of Science (MS) in Orthotics and Prosthetics provides an educational preparation for orthotists and prosthetists in the evaluation, fabrication, and custom fitting of artificial limbs and orthopedic braces. Students are trained on the assessment, treatment plan development, implementation, follow-up, and practice management of orthoses and prostheses.

The Century College and Concordia University-St. Paul partnership

The MS in Orthotics and Prosthetics is offered through a unique collaborative partnership between Concordia University, St. Paul and Century College.

Due to the accreditation requirement through the National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE), the MSOP has replaced the post-baccalaureate practitioner program previously offered through Century College. CSP and Century College representatives work closely to ensure a high-quality student experience that meets the educational needs of the orthotics and prosthetics industry.

All students who have a Bachelor’s degree must have completed one of the following to be qualified for our MS degree:

  • Attended Century College to get the O & P clinical coursework
  • Are currently certified as an ABC – O & P assistant

If you have not completed the pre-requisite above, please visit Century College’s website for more application information.

The application deadline is August 1 with FALL ONLY starts each year. The 18-month program consists of 33 credit hours offered primarily online with three one-week intensives held on Century College’s campus. Upon successful completion of all courses and of the final Capstone project, students are eligible to complete a residency as well as sit for an exam to be licensed.
