This program is designated a statewide program by the State of Maryland; therefore students who live in Maryland counties where there is no public community college therapeutic massage degree program, may apply for a waiver of the out-of-county tuition differential for courses included in the program.
The program provides a new career path for students wishing to practice as a certified massage therapist. Students enrolled in the therapeutic massage course sequence are required to comply with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) Code of Ethics, which is the scope of practice for the profession.
