The graduate certificate program in assessment of integrative health modalities provides students with extensive knowledge of integrative health practices and with an experiential and didactic experience in which cutting-edge research is explored, advanced skills are developed and a mindfulness practice is nurtured.
To satisfy the culminating project requirement, students may more deeply explore a topic of interest by completing an individual research paper or by performing a community activity that demonstrates mastery and application of the advanced skills acquired while enrolled in the certificate.
