Online Occupational Therapy Degrees

Occupational therapy is a physical science that helps patients recover after illnesses, accidents or any other injuries which prevent them from speaking, eating, moving or enjoying life in any way. It is very similar to physical therapy, but the degree differs slightly by focusing less on physical recovery and more on figuring out how to help people complete daily tasks in their present physical condition.

To become a fully licensed occupational therapist, you will need a minimum of a Master of Science Degree in Occupational Therapy. However, some shorter online degrees can help you to become an occupational therapy aide or assistant. Read on to discover which degree type will be best for you.
