Occupational therapists help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do. Occupational therapists help patients dealing with various disabilities or injuries improve or regain their ability to perform daily activities.
Many professional occupational therapy programs require a bachelor’s degree prior to admission and others will accept students into their program after three years of undergraduate work. The Pre-occupational therapy courses at Motlow State Community College are designed to prepare students for application to one of these professional programs.
Motlow’s Associate of Science (A.S.) degree prepares you for transfer to a university and is a Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP). TTPs enable you to complete your degree at Motlow and then transfer to any Tennessee public university, and several Tennessee private universities, to complete your bachelor’s degree.
