Master of Occupational Therapy
The Institute of Occupational Therapy offers a Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) degree as a first professional degree to those candidates who have completed a bachelor's degree including the required prerequisites. An entry-level or first professional Master of Occupational Therapy program differs from an advanced MOT degree in that it is designed for individuals who graduate with a baccalaureate degree in a discipline other than OT and who have completed coursework appropriate to entering an OT program. Upon graduation, you are prepared to take the national licensure exam necessary to practice Occupational Therapy.
