Texas College of TCM Changes Its Name to University.
Texas Health and Science University is a comprehensive, for-profit educational institution advised by a volunteer Board of Governors. The University is the successor to Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the first school of Acupuncture in the State of Texas, established in 1990. The Master's degree program in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), since 1996. ACAOM is the recognized accrediting agency for the approval of programs preparing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practitioners. The institution is also awarded initial grant of accreditation for the Master's degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS). The University offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine approved by Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Headquartered in the Austin, TX region, USA, the University offers a Dual Master's Degree program with Zhejiang Chinese Medical University, and has sister school relationships with seven institutions in Taiwan and China.
The name change will be accompanied by the expansion of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which currently offers the Master of Science program in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, to include a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree program, authorized by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), and the development of the College of Business Sciences, which will offer a new Master of Business Administration degree program. The new university also plans to expand its educational offerings to include a certificate program in English as a Second Language (ESL).
