What are the prerequisites for a degree in Occupational Therapy if I already hold a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Education.
Do I need to pursue undergraduate courses or certain certifications before considering a second Masters? Do I even need a second Masters?
Occupational Therapy is a great degree to pursue right now. Check out what the article "Five Majors That Let You Survive in the Double Dip Recession."
To become an Occupational Therapist you will need to earn your Master's degree in Occupational Therapy from an accredited educational program. You will also have to become licensed by passing a national certification exam.
Each program will have its own unique specific requirements. Because your Bachelor's and Master's degrees are not in the field of Occupational Therapy, you will probably have to take a few extra courses to catch up with the specialized knowledge that you would have gained from a Bachelorís Degree in Occupational Therapy.
I highly recommend you visit our Online Occupational Therapy Degrees page and contact each of the schools to find out what its specific requirements are for your exact situation.
