Master of Occupational Therapy (M.O.T.) James Madison University



Course info


The mission of the occupational therapy program is to provide a well-rounded educational experience to students that will prepare them to effectively practice in a variety of service areas within today's health and human service arena. Each graduate will:

  • possess a thorough understanding of occupation.
  • be able to articulate and demonstrate the theoretical and practical application of occupational therapy.
  • be comfortable and competent working with individuals in a variety of practice settings.
  • be committed to continuous professional growth and the evolution and validation of the profession as human needs change.
  • be able to systematically locate and evaluate available evidence-based literature to formulate assessment and intervention decisions to guide professional practice.

Faculty participating in the program will contribute through service and education to professional circles and the local community; and will maintain high standards of professional knowledge while offering quality education to students.

Occupational therapists work with individuals whose ability to participate in the occupations of life is disrupted or unable to develop due to injury, disease, developmental difficulties or environmental factors. Occupational therapy is a health and human service profession whose name is reflective of the time that it was formally founded (1917) when the term occupation collectively referred to activities people engage in throughout their day.

Based on the centuries-old belief that there is health in doing, active client-centered participation is the focus of the profession and its main avenue of intervention. Occupational therapists work in hospitals (inpatient and outpatient programs), rehabilitation centers, early intervention programs, schools, mental health programs, home health care agencies, industrial medicine/rehabilitation programs, skilled nursing facilities, private practices, correctional facilities, shelters, community-based programs or at colleges and universities as faculty.
