With two entry-level degree options, Belmont provides excellent preparation to become a licensed professional in this dynamic field. Both programs are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE).
The entry-level doctoral program is a full-time day program for those who have completed a bachelor’s degree at a regionally accredited college or university in any major.
The master’s degree program is designed for certified occupational therapy assistants (COTAs), who must continue working as they pursue their education. A limited number of spaces in the program are also available to current PTAs who have worked with a licensed occupational therapist. The full-time program is offered in a format that combines on-campus classes one weekend per month supplemented by online coursework.
The School of Occupational Therapy is part of the Gordon E. Inman College of Health Sciences & Nursing at Belmont University.
