Personal Development. Professional Achievement
The Won Institute offers a variety of professional degree and certificate programs aimed at preparing graduates for employment in a variety of helping professions, such as: acupuncture, herbal medicine, Won Buddhist ministry, and Buddhist pastoral care. Although the curriculum of each program is unique, a common core of contemplative and meditative coursework links our students to the mission of the Won Institute. The focus on contemplation and self-reflection through meditation provides our students with another tool to help their patients, students, and congregation. The Won Institute offers a unique educational experience and is accredited regionally by Middle States Commission on Higher Education and programatically by the Accreditaton Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (see here for details).
The Won Institute strongly supports those who made the
dedication to serving our Country. We offer scholarship
opportunities to current military and veterans.
A Veteran in the Master of Acupuncture Studies Program
“I love the Won! I am so glad I chose to come here and pursue the Acupuncture program. The teachers are all so varied and we get a very full education preparing us for a new career. I’m especially happy with the focus on both TCM & Five Element acupuncture styles that the Won offers. As a veteran I couldn’t think of a better way to use my GI Bill studying this form of holistic medicine. It’s has, is and hopefully will continue to be a great experience!”
