Master of Arts - Āyurveda

The Mount Madonna Institute Master of Arts degree in Āyurveda is a graduate level professional training that confers mastery and excellence in the field of holistic wellness and integrative health care.

The MA program includes graduate level courses in inter-professional education, research literacy, advanced Āyurvedic medicine and classical texts, supervised clinical internships, externships and apprenticeships and culminates with a capstone project and presentation.

Students will learn to adapt Ayurveda for an integrative approach to health care. Graduates function effectively within healthcare subsystems to deliver excellent team-based, client-centered care and education for individuals, families, and the community.

Achieve a level of academic excellence through advanced study, clinical practice, professional specialization, and a capstone project.

The next MA Program starts on April 8, 2021 in a Hyflex Format which allows students the flexibility of completing each session either online or onsite at Mount Madonna Center.

Students begin MA coursework while simultaneously completing the C-AP certificate; MA coursework is noted for depth and rigor. At the end of the coursework, students create, complete and present a capstone project, engage in supervised clinical externships and clinical apprenticeship work, and take a final exam to satisfy MMI MA requirements.
