The Auerbach School of Occupational Therapy
Spalding University’s Auerbach School of Occupational Therapy (ASOT) prepares students to become outstanding occupational therapy practitioners in varied health, educational and community settings. The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) program offers innovative, reflective, experiential learning opportunities enhanced through service designed to promote human potential. The Auerbach School of Occupational Therapy (ASOT) offers two entry-level degree options for individuals seeking a career in occupational therapy:
The Bachelor of Science in Health Science (BSHS) to Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) combined degree option is for individuals who have not completed an undergraduate degree in any area of study. Students interested in this option must first apply and be admitted to Spalding University prior to applying to the Auerbach School of Occupational Therapy. Upon completion of ASOT prerequisites and the University Studies requirements, major courses can be completed in 30 months based on full-time enrollment. After successful completion of the BSHS, students take an additional 36 credit hours of graduate level courses to earn the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT).
The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy is a 30-month program, consisting of 90 credit hours of graduate level study. Students who have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than occupational therapy may apply directly to the MSOT program.
