Pre-Occupational Therapy

Program(s) Available: Pre-professional

Occupational therapists work with individuals of all ages to gain or regain life skills that have been hindered by changes due to aging, injuries or disabilities. 

Why Study Pre-Occupational Therapy at Northwest

The pre-occupational therapy program at Northwest equips students with the knowledge, skills and foundation coursework to pursue entrance into an occupational therapy school.

Northwest offers pre-professional courses of study encompassing many careers. In most instances, these courses have been compiled with specific requirements of professional schools. Many professional schools require specific procedures regarding entrance tests, application deadlines and interviews. Thus, students are encouraged to speak with faculty advisors to identify the best path to achieve their goals.

Students interested in attending a physical therapy school should be aware of the prerequisites for admission to their intended school. These include minimum coursework in biology, chemistry, physics and classes in our general education curriculum. In addition to these minimum requirements, students should select a major with enough additional coursework to give them the best possible chance of scoring well on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Several different majors successfully prepare students for graduate school, including the Bachelor of Science in Biology/Psychology, Biology-Biomedical Sciences and Applied Health Sciences.

*Enrollment is not open to students on F-1 Visas for the pre-professional program.
