Occupational therapists (OT) help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students can declare pre-OT without verification from PPH Advising. Current students can request declaration of the pre-OT minor (through My Madison) but will need approval for the request to be granted. If the student has completed fewer than 9 hours of the prerequisite courses included in the minor the request will be granted after verification of course work. If the student has completed 9 hours or more of the prerequisite courses, the request will be granted only if the prerequisite GPA is 2.8 or greater.
