Occupational therapy programs require completion of a bachelor’s degree prior to admission. Students preparing for application to such programs must declare a major at Southeast in addition to declaring pre-occupational therapy. Health management, biology, chemistry, and physics are majors which are particularly complementary to occupational therapy preparation as they include many of the prerequisite courses. Prerequisite courses commonly include biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, psychology and English.
