To be an occupational therapist you must get bachelors and masters degree. The bachelors degree would take 3 - 4 years in any field but must have certain courses.


That depends on who you end up working for. Some places will give on the job training for occupational therapy, others require a bachelors or a specific medical degree.


One must earn a master's degree or a more advanced degree in occupational therapy


I do not know about having a Bachelor's degree, but you do need an OT (Occupational Therapist) license in order to work at a place that offers Occupational Therapy or if you were to start your own OT Clinic. The reason being this is because an OT is a medical position that requires, by law for the person practicing it, to have a license.
