School Selection Criteria

Here are some things to consider when choosing a homeopathy-related program:

  • Prospective students who are considering enrolling in broad programs in holistic health may want to find out if the school offers courses in homeopathy.
  • In programs that include clinical training or internships, it can be helpful to find out if hands-on training opportunities are available at facilities where homeopathy is practiced.
  • Students who are considering doctoral programs should try to find a school that is accredited by the Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges (AANMC).
  • Prospective students with scheduling constraints or work commitments may want to look for schools that provide online or part-time programs.

Certificate Programs

Some schools offer undergraduate certificate programs specifically in homeopathy. Students in these programs learn the basics of using homeopathic medicine techniques and remedies to promote health. In addition to taking basic human anatomy and physiology courses, students also learn about the legal aspects of homeopathy practice and the business fundamentals needed for success in the alternative health industry.

Associate's Degree Programs

Associate's degree programs in holistic health and complementary medicine expose students to the fundamental concepts of the field, including essential biomedical principles and a variety of methodologies. Students may have the opportunity to take a course in homeopathy. They also complete general education coursework.

Bachelor's Degree Programs

Bachelor's degree programs in holistic health or integrative medicine cover many of the same basic topics as associate's degree programs, but they are more comprehensive because they span four years instead of two. Homeopathy is a common course offering. There are also programs that give students credits for internships in the field, and students may have the chance to gain experience in a facility where homeopathy is practiced.

Master's Degree Programs

At the master's degree level, some Master of Science (MS) programs in integrative medicine focus on high level research in the field, and interested students may have the opportunity to focus their thesis work on the study of homeopathy. There are also broader master's degree programs that provide advanced coursework and clinical practicums in holistic health for healthcare professionals looking to boost their careers. These programs are most commonly offered online.

Doctoral Degree Programs

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) must complete a four-year training program and pass the Naturopathic Licensing Examinations (NPLEX) before they can practice in the field. ND programs include advanced biomedical science coursework and extensive clinical experience. In some programs, ND students can simultaneously complete a homeopathic medicine certificate, which consists of a few additional elective courses in homeopathy and prepares graduates to apply for the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians (HANP) credential when they graduate.

Students who are interested in homeopathy can find certificate programs specifically in the field as well as broader undergraduate and graduate degree programs that cover the topic.
