Belmont’s Master of Science in Occupational Therapy accelerated degree program is designed exclusively for licensed Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTAs) who have received initial certification by NBCOT. A limited number of spaces in the program are also available to licensed Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) who have worked with an occupational therapist.

The program combines intensive classes in Nashville every third weekend of each month with an online component that supplements classroom activities. This full-time program builds on the education and skills that OTAs and PTAs already possess. 


The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree program at Belmont University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE); 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929; 301-652-2682;  Program performance data on the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) National Certification Exam for all schools is available on the NBCOT website. The cost of attendance is included on the Admissions page.
