Become an Occupational Therapist and make a difference.
The Department of Occupational Therapy at Radford University and Radford University Carilion (RUC) is dedicated to educating future Occupational Therapy practitioners who are responsible, ethical, creative, and bold. We offer two tracks to earn the Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) degree:
- A traditional track with full-time or part-time options with in-person learning at our Radford and Roanoke sites. This track is for those seeking a degree in OT for the first time.
- An OTA to MOT Bridge track for the occupational therapy assistant wanting to earn the MOT degree. This track is designed specifically for the credentialed OTA who has at least one year of practice experience.
Why choose Radford?
Participate in therapeutic service and travel abroad opportunities with occupational therapy faculty and students.
Present with, learn from, and network with students and faculty from other disciplines across Radford University.
Learn with occupational therapy faculty in innovative practice settings such as primary care clinics and correctional facilities.
Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapist, administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of the exam, the graduate will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). In addition, all states including Virginia, require a license to practice. State licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT Certification Examination or attain state licensure.
The Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) through 2027. ACOTE can be contacted by postal mail at 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, Maryland 20852-4929, or by telephone at 301-652-AOTA.
The program's pass rates on the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy exam are published on NBCOT's website.
