Program Format & Schedule

The Master of Science in Health Promotion is designed to be completed in about two years (five trimesters) of concentrated study in an online format.

Online Format

Online courses offer tremendous flexibility for the student. The syllabus for each course provides details about weekly lessons and include expectations, due dates for assignments, and required participation. For more information about MUIH’s online format, click here.

Limited Residency Format

Maryland University of Integrative Health is currently unable to enroll students into the fully online format of our academic programs if they are residents of one of the following states:  Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, Minnesota, New York, South Dakota, or Wisconsin.  There are various reasons for this, governed by the higher education agency of the state and/or by the state’s participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA).  We continue to keep lines of communication open with state policy makers and with NC-SARA to determine MUIH’s eligibility in the future. 

In the interim, we have created a Limited Residency format for several of our academic programs that will allow residents of these states to apply for and enroll in these programs.  A Limited Residency format is available for the following certificates and degrees: 

  • Master of Arts in Health and Wellness Coaching
  • Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching
  • Master of Science in Health Promotion
  • Master of Science in Clinical Herbal Medicine
  • Master of Science in Herbal Product Design and Manufacture
  • Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Herbal Studies
  • Master of Science in Nutrition & Integrative Health

The Limited Residency format will require students to come to campus for a minimum number of weekend courses over the length of their entire degree program, while completing the rest of the program online.  Please click here to see a detailed breakdown of the limited residency courses that are required for this program. 

If you are an applicant from one of these states, please make sure to select “Hybrid-Limited Residency” as your program format when completing your application.  

Program Schedule

Online courses run asynchronously throughout each trimester. For trimester start and end dates, see the Academic Calendar.
