BSHS Concentration 1: Pre-Occupational Therapy

This concentration will prepare students to apply to a graduate program in occupational therapy. Graduate occupational therapy programs will accept a wide range of undergraduate degrees, but the B.S. in Health Science with the pre-occupational therapy concentration prepares the student for future practice in health care while efficiently including many prerequisite courses required by entry-level occupational therapy programs throughout the country. Students should check for specific requirements of the programs to which they intend to apply.
