NCNM offers students in good academic standing the opportunity to any two degrees concurrently starting their second year of study.
Additionally, ND students in good academic standing are eligible to apply for admission into the Qigong and Shiatsu Certificate programs.
Prepatory Degree Requirement
All candidates must possess a bachelor's degree or higher from a regionally accredited college or university, or the equivalent (as determined by NCNM) from an institution outside the United States. No specific major is advised though we require a strong preparation in the sciences, and encourage a broad background in the humanities and liberal arts. Prerequisite coursework is used to determine a student's preparation for the ND, MSOM, MAc or dual–track programs. Credit will only be given for prerequisite coursework earning a C or better. There is no advantage to holding a BS rather than a BA, as long as you have completed the program's prerequisites.
The following coursework is the minimum required preparation for the study of naturopathic or classical Chinese medicine. Applicants may apply with coursework still in progress, however, prerequisites must be completed prior to matriculation.
