There are multiple health sciences degrees at Mizzou, and the College of Health Sciences advising office works with Mizzou students interested in Occupational Therapy. Occupational Therapy is a graduate degree that requires an undergraduate major to apply. Though Pre-Occupational Therapy is not an undergraduate major, advisors in the College of Health Sciences will work with students to help them understand requirements for applying to occupational therapy. Mizzou offers a BHS in Occupational Therapy Assistant and a BHS in Health Sciences through the College of Health Sciences that can lead to graduate programs in Occupational Therapy.

In addition, the MedOpp Advising Office provides pre-professional advising for ALL students interested in medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, PA, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. See for more information.
