USM's Lewiston-Auburn College offers an entry-level Master of Occupational Therapy Program for students who have an undergraduate degree in any field.
The Master of Occupational Therapy program takes an integrative and holistic approach in educating students to become Occupational Therapists. Graduates of this program will be prepared to succeed in the health and community care contexts as ethical, socially responsible, life-long learners.

The University of Southern Maine also offers a MOT 4+1 Accelerated Pathway for those currently enrolled in one of three specific USM bachelor degree programs.
The MOT program is happy to announce that we will be continuing with our current Master's degree while also planning for an entry-level OTD program. To learn more about potential changes to the education of future OT practitioners, please visit the AOTA website.
