Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) *

Our program builds on a liberal arts foundation to lead students to a reflective professional practice, a fulfilling and invigorating career, and transformative leadership opportunities that improve the health, well-being, and lives of others.

* The entry-level occupational therapy master’s degree program has applied for accreditation and has been granted Preaccreditation Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929. ACOTE’s telephone number c/o AOTA is (301) 652-AOTA and its web address is www.acoteonline.org. The program must complete an on-site evaluation and be granted Accreditation Status before its graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). In addition, all states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.

Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT)*

Anticipated first cohort beginning Summer 2021

Our developing program in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences in the School of Natural & Health Sciences. In this interprofessional program, students will work hand-in-hand with other health professions in the classroom and the clinic. Moravian's DPT will grant an entry-level professional DPT degree and allow graduates to apply for licensure to practice as physical therapists.

* Graduation from a physical therapist education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states. The contact information for CAPTE is as follows:

3030 Potomac Avenue, Suite 100
Alexandria, Virginia 22305-3085
Phone: 703-706-3245
Email: accreditation@apta.org

Moravian College is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist education program from CAPTE. The program has submitted an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.

Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP)

Our program provides students with a problem-based, interprofessional education that fosters the development of competent, reflective leaders who will transform lives through the practice of Speech-Language Pathology.
