To ensure you are fully prepared to begin your occupational therapy courses, you must
complete several requirements. When you apply to Towson, you must declare your major
as “pre-occupational therapy” so that you are assigned to the correct adviser. You
also must fill out a supplemental application and complete a series of prerequisites
with a B grade, including: • Biology for the Health Professions or Cellular Biology or Human Anatomy and Physiology
• Writing for a Liberal Education • Introduction to Psychology • Introduction to Sociology
Your Pre-OT year will be considered the first year of the combined B.S./M.S. program
in occupational therapy. If you are accepted into the program, you will begin occupational
therapy courses in the fall semester of your second year of coursework.
Please note: Declaring the major and completing first-year courses does not guarantee admission into the Occupational Therapy program.
