Why JMU Occupational Therapy?


James Madison University's Occupational Therapy program is a graduate-level degree offering in the Department of Health Professions.

The JMU OT program prepares students for entry-level positions in the occupational therapy profession. The program requires 30 months of study after all prerequisite requirements are completed. Admission is limited and competitive, with students being selected through an admissions process. Pre-OT students interested in applying must also submit to the admissions process. Admission to JMU does not guarantee admission to the OT program.

JMU OT program graduates have secured positions across the country and received very high employer satisfaction rates.
