Knox has an affiliation agreement with Washington University in St. Louis, whose occupational therapy program is among the top-ranked in the nation. The affiliation agreement means that Knox students who meet the prerequisites receive preference in the Washington University admission process.
Students attend Knox for three years, then Washington University for two years, earning both a bachelor's degree from Knox and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) degree from Washington University.
Our strengths in the life sciences provide excellent preparation for the occupational therapy entrance requirements -- whether at Washington University or another graduate school. We also emphasize community service and volunteer work, which can be a significant enhancement to a graduate school application in occupational therapy and other health-related fields.
