Pre-Professional Pathways are not offered as majors at Western, nor are they at most other universities, but they can be incorporated into or taken alongside any degree-granting major offered at Western.
Pre-Occupational Therapy is not a major at Western. Western students prepare for entry to a graduate program in occupational therapy by obtaining a baccalaureate degree, completing the prerequisite course work for entry into specific programs, and by obtaining a broad variety of volunteer clinical experience under the direction of an occupational therapist.
Students can enter many of the allied health or medical professions from most any major. Some majors are more practical since they contain many or all of the prerequisites within the major. Examples of majors that cover some or all of the prerequisites include: Bio-Anthropology, Biology, Community Health and Kinesiology/Pre-Physical Therapy, and Kinesiology/Pre-Health Care Professions.
