Associate of Applied Science - Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA)

 

Academic Map

The AAS in Occupational Therapy Assistant is a one-plus-one degree program which prepares students to practice as a certified occupational therapy assistant (COTA) after meeting certification and state licensure standards. Moberly Area Community College is one of five colleges in the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC) currently selected to offer the program coordinated through the University of Missouri. MACC will offer and enroll students in the general education coursework; sophomore level (professional level) coursework will be taught to MACC students at a classroom located on the MACC-Columbia campus. Interactive television and internet based technologies will also be readily utilized to convey course content. Through the combination of general education, professional level coursework, classroom and laboratory practice, and clinical fieldwork experiences, students will learn the profession of occupational therapy assistant. The Professional Year does not run on a traditional MACC academic cycle. Classes will begin the Monday after New Year's Day and will run through the end of the Fall Semester. Completion of professional year coursework takes one full calendar year.
