Post-Baccalaureate MOT Program Curriculum

In addition to our DrOT program, we continue to offer the MOT program to post-baccalaureate students (the MOT program is no longer offered for direct entry BS/MOT students). The post-baccalaureate MOT curriculum is typically completed within 2 ½ years of full time study (including summers).

The following is a typical curriculum for post-baccalaureate MOT students entering University of the Sciences in Summer 2014; other students should refer to their advisor for their curricula.
