Therapeutic Massage/Integrated Health Care

Sample Schedule

This program is designed to prepare students for the New York State massage license examination. Students are required to complete a minimum of 64 credit hours with a grade point average of not less than C (2.0) with a minimum of 150 hours of general theory and techniques in the fundamentals of Western Massage therapy and Oriental Massage therapy, with an additional 325 hours of instruction and student practice in massage therapy techniques for a total of 475 hours.

The schedule below shows how the requirements for this degree may be met in four semesters. This schedule is an example of one of many possible schedules that might be followed by a full-time student. Many students attending FLCC who have work and/or family obligations choose a different sequence of courses and may take more than four semesters to fulfill the requirements for the degree. Similarly, students who find they need to take some preparatory coursework may plan a schedule that takes more than four semesters to complete. You should consult with your advisor when planning your schedule. If you plan to continue your studies at a four-year college or university, you also should check with your transfer institution with regard to specific courses and requirements.
