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.

We invite you to peruse our website, learn about our MOT degree program offerings, connect with us via Facebook and Instagram, and get in touch with us to learn more!

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.
