UIndy offering two OT degrees

In 2015, the University of Indianapolis School of Occupational Therapy will offer two entry-level OT degrees. Each degree, the Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) and the Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) will prepare students to successfully enter the workforce as practicing occupational therapists.

There are two differences in the degree levels:

  1. Format (1 day/week versus 5 days/week)
  2. Clinical fieldwork experiences and application

Master of Occupational Therapy (part-time)

The MOT will be offered as a part-time hybrid program, with classes on campus one day each week with corresponding coursework in an online environment. This format makes the program especially ideal for career-changers who already have a bachelor's degree and others who want to continue working while going to OT school. MOT students will be required to complete two levels of full-time fieldwork — practical experience in a real-life setting — to earn the degree.

The MOT program will begin in January 2015. The deadline to apply for the MOT program is September 15, 2014.

Doctor of Occupational Therapy (full-time)

The OTD program will be offered as a full-time program. Classes will meet throughout the week during the day. Students pursuing the OTD will be required to complete three levels of fieldwork. The additional level of fieldwork not required in the MOT program includes an in-depth experience in an advance area of practice that may include advanced clinical practice, research, administration, leadership, program development, public policy, advocacy, education, and/or theory development.

Applications for students wishing to begin the OTD program in 2015 are due by November 1, 2014.
