Board of Regents Approves New Occupational Therapy Graduate Degree at Middle Georgia State

A proposal to launch a new graduate program at Middle Georgia State University (MGA) was approved by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia at its April meeting. The new degree, a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT), is a bridge program designed to help currently-licensed occupational therapy assistants advance their careers.


“In the face of the ongoing epidemic of opioid addiction and abuse, the medical industry has identified alternative pain management solutions, and occupational therapy will be one of the key practices in that field to fight the symptoms of this public health crisis,” said Dr. Kevin Cantwell, dean of Graduate Studies at MGA.
