Florida International University's entry-level professional Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MS-OT) at the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences is designed for students who hold a baccalaureate degree in any discipline from an accredited college or university to become occupational therapists.


Meaningful and independent living is increasingly valuable to our society. From childhood development to the aging workforce and beyond, FIU occupational therapists are leading the way to help people overcome physical, cognitive and psychosocial dysfunctions to achieve richer, functioning lives.
