St. Kate’s Online Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) Program
Every day, OTAs are transforming lives young and old by helping them to live better, more fulfilling lives. Unfortunately, though, there are not enough occupational therapy assistants nationwide. The Online OTA program at St. Catherine University is changing that by making it possible to earn an associate degree in occupational therapy in as few as 16 months.
Blending online and on-site curriculum, our accredited program has and continues to set the standard for OTA education. Not only did St. Kate’s launch the nation’s first OTA program in 1964, we redefined the way it’s taught with the introduction of our 80% online OTA program.
Through our innovative Online OTA program, you’ll:
- Complete online coursework when and where it’s convenient for you.
- Participate in hands-on labs and more than 700 hours of professional fieldwork.
- Develop the skills needed to work under the supervision of an occupational therapist.
- Graduate prepared to sit for the NBCOT® exam to become a certified OTA.
