I currently have a BA in Communications and am interested in Occupational Therapy. What would be involved with a career change?
To work as an occupational therapist you must earn a master's degree or more in occupational therapy. You must also become licensed in order to practice in the United States. To earn a license applicants must graduate from an accredited educational program and pass a national certification examination.
Because you have your BA in Communications and not in occupational therapy, you might have to undergo a few more requirements to be accepted into a Master's program. I highly recommend visiting our Occupational Therapy Degrees page and contacting each of the schools to see what their specific requirements would be for your unique situation.
