What is a Bachelor in Alternative Medicine? This program is aimed toward students who want to help others via non-conventional healing modalities. Programs may have a more general, all-encompassing approach, or they may focus on specific areas of specialization. Areas of alternative medicine include reflexology, naturopathy, massage, yoga, acupuncture, and reiki therapy. Fundamental courses may be biology, anatomy, pathology, physiology, and medical jurisprudence.
Students who study alternative medicine build a wide body of knowledge and a variety of skills, so they can choose from a number of different jobs based on their area of study. Most programs offer hands-on training so that graduates can feel confident once they are in the workforce.
The costs involved with earning an alternative medicine degree will differ from one institution to another. The reputation and duration of the program are big factors, and each program may have specific fees associated with it. Call the schools of interest to find out what the fees and tuition will be.
Graduates have a wealth of careers they can choose from once they have their degree. They can choose to open a practice in their specialty and help people via reflexology, natural medicine, massage therapy, reiki, or acupuncture. Certain professionals, such as spa directors, nurses, and physicians, may choose this degree to help them take a more comprehensive approach with their current clients and patients. Other career paths may include life coaches or personal trainers.
