Professional Practice

Massage Therapy students learn and practice skills in the on-campus Massage Therapy Clinic. On-going recruitment of clients for the clinic is necessary for each student to meet his/her program requirements. Students will be expected to recruit clients in addition to the client that seeks routine care in the clinic.

Transfer Options

Graduates may pursue a bachelor degree at Bowling Green State University. Meet with an Enrollment Representative or the Program Chair for more information.
