A master's degree or higher in occupational therapy is the typical minimum requirement for entry into the field. In addition, occupational therapists must attend an academic program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) in order to sit for the national certifying exam.

It's going to be a rather long journey to get it. Typically you'll need a post-baccalaureate degree for it.


You can work as an occupational therapy assistant with an associate's degree. However, to become an occupational therapist you must earn a bachelor's degree and complete advanced coursework.

In the United States, a master's degree is the minimum acceptable level of schooling required to apply as an occupational therapist. Prior to university, students need to concentrate on courses like chemistry, biology, physics, and health. Exact qualifications may differ from area to area, so it is wise to check to be sure.


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.


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.
