Occupational Therapy Degree Programs

Earn a Occupational Therapy degree from an accredited school

Occupational therapists help patients live independent, productive, and satisfying lives by helping to improve their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities, and compensate for permanent loss of function. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics expects employment of occupational therapists to grow by 26% between 2008 and 2018, much faster than the average for all other occupations. Job opportunities should be best for qualified therapists who specialize in treating aging and elderly patients.

A Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy is required for entry into the field. Typical coursework includes study topics including:

  • Therapeutic Media
  • Dyadic and Group Dynamics
  • Theories of Inquiry and Research Methodology
  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Functional Neuroscience
  • Kinesiology and Biomechanics

All states require occupational therapists to pass a national licensing exam to become certified. Check with your state's licensing agency to find out the specific requirements in your area.

Whether you're a current healthcare professional or looking to start a new career, accredited online and campus occupational therapy degrees have helped many further their education and achieve success by pursuing a new and rewarding career.
