Pre-Occupational Therapy Program



Occupational therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations).

Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. A student seeking a career in occupational therapy should plan on completing a degree in psychology in order to be prepared to apply to Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) programs. The Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) is growing in popularity and some schools are moving their programs from MOT to OTD. Graduates from these programs are qualified to sit for the exam administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
