The University of Washington Master of Occupational Therapy (UW MOT) degree is a two-year program of rigorous academic coursework integrated with fieldwork education.


Key facts

As an Occupational Therapy program located within University of Washington's Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, we offer students several unique benefits:

  • A 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Each of the 24 students we admit per year receives personal attention from expert faculty. Our students develop strong camaraderie with their cohort and work together with faculty and staff to sustain a collaborative Community of Learning.
  • An interdisciplinary curriculum that emulates real-world occupational therapy practice. Our students have the opportunity to take required and elective coursework with students from other health disciplines.
  • Authentic, immersive community-based Clinical Learning Experiences. In addition to their fieldwork education, our students engage with clients in real-life settings through course assignments and a year-long capstone Graduate Project where they work in small groups to develop and implement programs in response to community needs. View our recent MOT Graduate Projects.
  • Automatic qualification for Educational Staff Associate (ESA) Certification.  Our graduates qualify for ESA Certification in the State of Washington so they can take jobs working with children in the public school system with no additional training.
