36 Credit Hours
On Campus & Online
The MS in Orthotics and Prosthetics is offered through a collaborative partnership between Concordia University, St. Paul and Century College. Due to changes in 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. Concordia University, St. Paul and Century College representatives work closely to ensure a high-quality student experience that meets the educational needs of the orthotics and prosthetics industry.
The application deadline is August 1 with FALL ONLY starts each year. The 22-month program (5 ½ semesters) consists of 36 credit hours offered primarily online with three, one-week intensives held on the Century College campus.
Although CSP’s program is 22 months, the timeline to complete the entire O & P curriculum between Concordia and Century is longer unless a student completes the BS-Orthotics and Prosthetics degree from Concordia.
Please view these flow charts for more information regarding the Concordia-Century partnership and associated timelines.
Upon conferral of the MSOP degree, students will need to complete an NCOPE approved residency. Students can visit the National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE) website for more information regarding residency eligibility and requirements.
