This program is no longer admitting students as of Fall 2018.  Program will transition to entry-level OTD beginning Fall 2020.

To complete the MOT degree, students will initially obtain a BLA with a concentration in Human Occupation Studies and a University approved minor or second concentration.

It will culminate in a 6 month, post academic internship; the entire course of study spans 5 ½ years. Transfer students who are certified occupational therapy assistants may receive transfer credit for some of the BLA requirements depending on the articulation agreement worked out with the occupational therapy assistant program previously attended.
