THE MASTER OF ACUPUNCTURE Southwest Acupuncture College
The M.Ac. program is a specialized subset of the Master of Acupuncture with a Chinese Herbal Medicine Specialization program that allows students to focus on acupuncture without the herbal component of the Master of Acupuncture with a Chinese Herbal Medicine Specialization degree.
The M.Ac. program includes an Introduction to Herbology course surveying the power of Chinese herbs in practice (to facilitate referral), plus three acupuncture specialty courses. Thirty-nine states, including Colorado (but not New Mexico or California), allow licensing for acupuncture-only programs.
