Prerequisites for Admission
An undergraduate degree is required for admission to the MOT program, though there is no requirement that the degree be in a specific major. A degree in psychology is perfectly acceptable; so is a degree in any of the liberal arts or sciences. But you do have to have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university before you will be eligible to apply. Also, you will have to have fulfilled certain prerequisites.
Prerequisites, in this case, include specific college coursework and a minimum GPA.
Prerequisite requirements for application to the MOT can be found in the current GSU Catalog under Special Admission Requirements.
NOTE: This program requires applicants to take the GRE and submit their scores with their application.
