About this course
The Master’s Degree in Acupuncture (M.Ac.) Program provides the foundational knowledge and skill in Traditional Chinese Medicine needed to pass the national (NCCAOM) acupuncture certifying examination, become licensed in Arizona and many other states, and work competently as an L.Ac. in private practice. The M.Ac. Degree includes the A.B.T./Tuina Certificate course work (described below). The M.Ac. Degree requires 3 calendar years of full-time study. Students are in classroom and clinic 44 weeks a year. Total program hours: 2,626. All first year students enroll for the M.Ac. Degree. Owing to the primary role of herbology in Chinese medicine, we strongly encourage students to join the M.Ac.O.M. degree program in year two.
Applicants must have completed two years (60 semester credits or 90 quarter credits) from an accredited baccalaureate-level institution. No specific subject-area courses are required for admission. Courses accepted towards entrance requirement are without limit of time.
