MOT CURRICULUM

 

The Master of Occupational Therapy Program is designed to bridge the knowledge and skills of the Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant to become a Master’s level entry Occupational Therapist.

To learn more about the Occupational Therapy Coursework, click here to see a list of classes and descriptions. Fieldwork experiences (click here to see more about fieldwork) occur throughout the program in a variety of areas, culminating in two 12 week full time internships. These internships must be completed within 24 months of finishing classroom work.


The program length is 2 academic years with service learning and Level I Fieldwork embedded within the curriculum. At the completion of the academic portion, 24 weeks of Level II Fieldwork are required. This is divided into the two internships mentioned previously. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination for Occupational Therapists. Details about this certification can be found at www.nbcot.org. After successful completion of this exam, graduates receive the title of Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR).
