Though Pre-Occupational Therapy is not an undergraduate major, 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. Other majors, like Psychological Sciences, can also be useful preparation for this career.

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.
