Pre-Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy

St. Catherine University offers two alternatives for completing the Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy (MAOT). A dual-degree program is available to undergraduate students resulting in a B.A. or B.S. degree in select majors (see below and Dual Degree Programs tab), and a Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy (MAOT). The graduate entry level MAOT program is available to students who have completed a B.A. or B.S. in another major. The graduate program is available in a weekday format.

There are three options for admission to the dual-degree program and the master of arts in occupational therapy (MAOT). Each option requires completion of the following prerequisite courses.

Option 1: Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP)

Students may apply to the University and to the guaranteed admission program during their senior year in high school. Students must meet the following criteria to be eligible for consideration for the MAOT guaranteed admission program:

Required:

  • ACT score of 24 or better
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.25 or better on a 4.0 scale
  • Declare one of the four dual-degree majors (see below) as intended area of study

Select students are admitted to the guaranteed admission program each year. Students who apply on or before February 15 of their senior year will be given priority consideration for admission to the program.

Option 2: Standard Application Process for the Dual-Degree MAOT Program

In this option, students enter one of the University's pre-occupational therapy areas of study in communication studies, exercise and sport science, psychology, or public health: public policy that include all MAOT prerequisites, liberal arts core requirements and major course work in the particular field of study.

Students are eligible to apply to the MAOT program in their junior year provided all MAOT admission requirements have been met. Applicants must complete a dual degree application and meet all other admission criteria for consideration to the program including:

  • Cumulative GPA of 3.2 or better

  • Prerequisite course work GPA of 3.2 or better

  • Have met with a pre-occupational therapy advisor
  • At least five of the prerequisite courses completed before applying to the MAOT program, including at least two from the sciences (anatomy, physiology, statistics)
  • Only one prerequisite course may be repeated, and it may not be repeated more than once
  • If two or more prerequisite courses have a grade lower than a C the student is ineligible for the dual-degree program

Students accepted into the MAOT for their senior year will be granted a B.A. or B. S. degree after successful completion of the first year of the MAOT program if they have met all graduation requirements. The student’s major will be public health: public policy, applied science in communication studies, applied science in exercise and sport science, or applied science in psychology. Students continue with approximately one more year of graduate-level occupational therapy coursework to complete the MAOT degree.

Students who are not accepted into the MAOT program can complete a major in communication studies, exercise and sport science, psychology, or public health: public policy. The curriculum for each of the areas of study is listed on the Dual Degree Programs tab.

Option 3: Entry-Level Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy Program

This option is designed for students who have completed a B.A. or B.S. in another major. 

Students are eligible to apply to the MAOT program provided all MAOT admission requirements have been met. Applicants must apply to the program using the OTCAS online application system and meet all admission criteria for consideration to the program including:

  • Cumulative GPA of 3.2 or better

  • Prerequisite course work GPA of 3.2 or better

  • Have met with a pre-occupational therapy advisor
  • At least five of the prerequisite courses completed before applying to the MAOT program, including at least two from the sciences (anatomy, physiology, statistics)
  • Only one prerequisite course may be repeated, and it may not be repeated more than once
  • If two or more prerequisite courses have a grade lower than a C the student is ineligible for the entry-level Master of Arts in Occupational Therapy program
