If you have a heart for helping people, consider the Occupational Therapy Assistant track in the new Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Sciences program at IU Kokomo.
This degree will combine classroom, laboratory, fieldwork, and clinical experiences to prepare students for work in the rehabilitation field.
The B.S. in Occupational Therapy Assistant degree will prepare you to work as an OTA in many settings and will serve as an excellent base for graduate study in a healthcare field such as occupational therapy or physical therapy.
You will spend the first two years completing the prerequisite coursework, with the clinical major occurring in the junior and senior year.
We anticipate welcoming students into the junior-level clinical major in the fall of 2023. The application cycle for that first cohort will begin in the spring of 2023.
