Pre-Occupational Therapy

Maryville University’s Pre-Occupational Therapy program is designed to expose students to the psychology, science, and math courses needed to enter into an OT graduate program. Occupational therapists must complete a master’s degree in order to gain certification in this fast-growing medical field. Maryville’s Pre-Occupational Therapy program, although not a major, has been embedded in psychology because we believe that psychology is uniquely suited to prepare students for the academic demands of a graduate program in occupational therapy.
