Welcome to the Masters of Occupational Therapy Program

The MOT program is designed as a 4+2 curriculum which includes both academic and practice courses totaling 82 credit hours (64 credits of academic coursework and 18 credits of Level II fieldwork). Level II fieldwork must be completed on a full-time basis (9 credit hours per course), and within 24 months of completing the academic component of the curriculum. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the exam from the National Board for the Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) required for licensure with Texas. Note: A felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to take the NBCOT exam.
