Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (BOT)

There are several ways to pursue your degree in Bachelor of Occupational Therapy. The Associate's degree in Occupational Therapy assists students in their preparation to take the national certification exam for occupational therapy assistants. The Bachelor's/Master's degree in Occupational Therapy, also known as a four+1 or 4+2 program, offers students the opportunity to obtain both degrees in a faster time period. However, it is important to note that master's degrees in occupational therapy require more academic coursework than a bachelor's degree.
