Yes! CCA is committed to helping students understand the complete science of Ayurvedai as it was articulated thousands of years ago by the ancient rishis. This knowledge is contained in three major and three minor texts of Ayurveda written between 1500 B.C. and 1500 A.D. The curriculum at CCA helps to bring this ancient wisdom to you in a modern and easily understandable format.
Dr. Marc Halpern developed the title of Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist (C.A.S.) in 1995 for graduates of the California College of Ayurveda who have achieved the school's highest level of training in both health promotion and disease management. The C.A.S. title has become recognized as the highest standard of clinical Ayurvedic education offered in the United States. The title Ayurvedic Health Practitioner (A.H.P.) was introduced in 2007 by CCA to recognize the completion of our health promotion and disease prevention program. There are currently no Doctor of Ayurveda clinical degrees recognized in the United States. Bachelor's and Master's degrees offered at all schools in the United States are academic degrees only. They do not afford the recipient any additional practice rights.
No. However, Hindu University of America (International Vedic Hindu University) will accept the California College of Ayurveda’s AHP certification as a basis for their Master’s Degree Program. Through the Hindu University of America, students will complete a course in Hinduism and Sanskrit, along with a final research thesis paper or two additional electives in their program. All additional course work for their Master’s program can be completed through their distance learning program. Courses and requirements are subject to change at Hindu University of America’s discretion.
