MASTER OF SCIENCE IN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY (MSOT)
Program Vision and Mission
The vision of the Moravian College Occupational Therapy Program is to be recognized as a revolutionary occupational therapy educational program that offers innovative occupation based community programs while preparing professionals to change lives through the power of occupation. Moravian College's Occupational Therapy Program builds on a liberal arts foundation to lead occupational therapy students to a reflective professional practice, a fulfilling and invigorating career dedicated to engaging individuals in meaningful occupations, and transformative leadership opportunities that improve the quality of life, improve the health and well-being of others, and change lives through the power of occupation.
We 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 (4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, MD 20814-3449, 301-652-AOTA) and anticipate a favorable candidacy application review which will allow us to admit students as early as the Fall of 2018.
As a developing program, graduation rates, program graduates, and National Certification of Occupational Therapists (NBCOT) exam outcome data are not available at this time.
Graduates from the Moravian College Occupational Therapy Program, through the power of occupation, will strive to be a little revolutionary by:
- translating knowledge to meet the occupational needs of individuals, groups, and communities
- advocating and leading for occupational justice as a politically competent practitioner
- engaging in the occupational therapy process as a reflective practice scholar
- promoting quality of life, health, and wellness in a variety of contexts
- enjoying a fulfilling career in occupational therapy, consistent with the college mission
- effectively incorporating research into everyday evidenced based practice in collaboration with clients
- ethically solving challenges presented in practice
