Pre-Professional Interest Area Information
The pre-occupational therapy program is a pre-professional curriculum whereby all the necessary prerequisites can be completed in preparation for applying to a school of occupational therapy. The department provides advising to assist each student. A strong undergraduate academic record is important. Schools of occupational therapy offer a master’s degree or doctoral degree. Students must complete a bachelor’s degree and certain number of required courses before applying to a professional occupational therapy program. Not all occupational therapy programs have the same prerequisites.  Students should contact schools of interest to verify specific prerequisites.
