Academic Requirements for Master of Science in Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy practitioners work in a wide range of settings including schools, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health, outpatient rehabilitation clinics, psychiatric facilities, and community health programs. School systems, hospitals and long-term-care facilities are the primary work settings for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants.


The profession's accrediting body, the American Occupational Therapy Association (ACOTE), has granted PreAccreditation Status to the program. Preaccreditation Status indicates that the program has met the 2018 ACOTE Accreditation Standards if fully implemented in accordance with the plans. ACOTE will perform an onsite visit in the Summer 2023 and the decision for full accreditation would follow in August 2023. If granted full accreditation, graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for occupational therapists through the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) and will be able to apply for licensure through the professional licensure board in the state in which the graduate wishes to practice.
