Master of Occupational Therapy Program
The Carroll University Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) program is a two-year, post-baccalaureate program that will prepare students to pursue one of the most rewarding and fastest growing health care careers in Wisconsin and nationwide.
The MOT program consists of six consecutive semesters of study in two calendar years. Specific modules, activities, and learning experiences within the OT program will be shared between graduate health science programs to support true inter-professional education and prepare students for collaboration in the workplace. The MOT program is located at the Carroll University Center for Graduate Studies in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
The Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) Program embraces the concept of healthy occupational engagement as a determinant of health and acknowledges that the essence of healthy life participation lies in meaningful occupation, which is an experience unique to each person and the context in which they exist. The Carroll University Compact exhorts students to "contemplate" the obligation of considering thoughtfully the "values and ideals espoused" by others. Diversity is an inherent factor in the self, and is what makes one human. Therein lies the link between occupation and OT practice and it is this connection that drives the curricular philosophy and mission of the MOT Program and creates an alliance with the University and the student standards set forth.
The Carroll University Master of Occupational Therapy Program has applied for accreditation and has been granted PREACCREDITATION STATUS by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA). The preaccreditation review is a process used by ACOTE as a mechanism for providing feedback to a developing program prior to the initial on-site evaluation. The granting of PREACCREDITATION STATUS indicates that, on the basis of examination of the initial Report of Self-Study and supplementary information available to the reviewers, ACOTE has determined that the program is likely to meet the ACOTE Accreditation Standards for a Master's-Degree-Level Educational Program for the Occupational Therapist, if fully implemented in accordance with its plans. This is intended to provide an indication that program planning appears to be proceeding in a direction that will lead toward ACOTE accreditation. The granting of PREACCREDITATION STATUS is not a guarantee of accreditation status.
