Georgia State is a public research university. Therefore, research is embedded in the curriculum and scientific inquiry is a major thread of the curriculum. Research and peer reviewed research literature analysis are components of all courses in the curriculum.
Each student as a part of group research project takes part in scholarly inquiry mentored by research faculty in a collaborative manner. The student assumes responsibility for learning in a self-directed manner without the structure provided by the typical classroom course.
Students take Evidence Based Project I and II followed by Masters Project I, II, and III to conduct an original, meaningful, valid research relevant to occupational therapy. Students are expected to present their work in regional and national conferences and write a peer reviewed article as the culmination of their projects.
