Moravian Graduate


We are working diligently to develop a revolutionary new Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program and are currently in the beginning stages of the accreditation process. We have declared our intent to establish this program with the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) and anticipate a favorable candidacy application review which will allow us to admit students as early as the Fall of 2018.

In addition to an earned Bachelor’s degree, the prerequisite courses are as follows:

  • Human Anatomy and Physiology I & II
  • Introduction to Psychology
  • Abnormal Psychology
  • Statistics
  • Lifespan Human Development OR Developmental Psychology
  • Philosophy (Ethics)
  • Research Methods (quantitative and qualitative recommended)
  • Sociology OR Anthropology (either with a multicultural/diversity focus)

For additional information about the occupational therapy program, refer to the Occupational Therapy Program in the Moravian College Catalog.

At the same time that we are developing this top-notch entry-level occupational therapy master’s program that will prepare each individual to meet the challenges that face today's practitioner, we are also busy designing and developing state-of-the-art learning environments that reflect current best teaching practices that will engage the active student learner.

We anticipate a favorable accreditation review prior to our first class graduating in 2020. Once you graduate from an ACOTE accredited educational program, you will be eligible to sit for the certification examination administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) to become an Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR) and to apply for state licensure in the state in which you wish to practice.
