Course Sequence

Preceding their professional preparation, students receive a liberal education in their preprofessional studies at the undergraduate level. Most students complete the Bachelors of Health Science degree (BHS) at UF that includes a common core taken by all students. Health Science students planning to enter the Masters in Occupational Therapy Degree Program complete six courses that can be applied toward their preparation for the MOT degree.

MOT Students that have completed the pre-OT track are admitted for Summer semester only, and graduate at the end of the Fall semester following 1.33 years of full time study (5 semesters) and 58 credits.

Students who have graduated from the other colleges or universities can be admitted to the MOT program and complete the pre-OT track courses as part of their graduate program and prior to initiating coursework in the Masters in Occupational Therapy Degree Program. The six Pre-OT courses are offered the first Fall and Spring semesters preceding the Summer start of the MOT program. These classes must be completed with a C grade or better and the student must earn a 3.0 semester average each semester to continue with the MOT courses. Tuition is charged at undergraduate rates for all 6 pre-OT classes.

PHC 6937 Introduction to Public Health: All graduate students in this college must complete this course. MOT students will be enrolled and will complete this free non-credit class during the first summer semester. The purpose of the course is to provide a broad introduction to public health as well as an understanding about how health professions contribute to achieving the goals of public health.
