What is a Master in Alternative Medicine? Alternative medicine may encompass a variety of different disciplines, so the degree name may vary from school to school. However, the program usually focuses on Eastern medicine techniques and theories, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage and mind-body healing. Students will be expected to master advanced techniques and understand the theories and practices behind them. Most programs teach students how to use alternative medicine in coordination with traditional medicine so they are able to treat patients in conjunction with traditional doctors.

Completing this degree program may allow a graduate to increase the use of alternative medicine in the mainstream health care system. Graduates might be able to offer alternative medical care to those who may not have had access to it before or educate the traditional medical industry on the alternative options that could be used in conjunction with traditional methods to improve the overall health care system.

The cost of a program varies widely. The best way to determine costs is to speak with a school’s financial department to learn about all the costs associated with the program.

A graduate of this program has a variety of different career options based on her or his other experience and education. Some of these possibilities include working in education, research and health care.
