Preparing you for admission to any school of occupational therapy
About The Program
As an occupational therapist, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a variety of patients, guiding them to develop skills that will enhance their lives and help them gain independence. While pre-occupational therapy is not a major itself, we’ll match you with a degree program and the necessary coursework required to prepare you for admission into a school of occupational therapy.
This program will be a good fit if you:
- Have strong communication skills
- Can demonstrate integrity and caring
- Are patient and organized
- Show caring and compassion for others
- Are a good listener
- Enjoy research
- Are creative and a good critical thinker
With an occupational therapy degree, you could work in the areas of:
- Pediatric occupational therapy
- Geriatric occupational therapy
- Speech-language pathology
At Northern, we believe getting you out of the classroom and into a real-world workplace setting is a critical part of your education. You'll have several opportunities for internships and other forms of experiential learning throughout your time at Northern. Learn more at Student Experiences!
