Morgan Community College

MASSAGE THERAPY PROGRAM

The Massage Therapy Program at Morgan Community College is designed to provide the skills and credentials students need to work as massage therapists in health care settings, spas, and private practice. Many health care professionals enroll in the Massage Therapy Program as an additional certification to enhance their job skills and employability. The MCC program is based on American Massage Therapy guidelines and meets the criteria for national certification.

Some courses are available at MCC Centers. Students are welcome to enroll in Massage Therapy courses MST 108 Lifestyle Wellness and HHP 108 Aromatherapy without specifically being accepted into the program.

See DISQUALIFYING OFFENSES at http://www.morgancc.edu/docs/disqualifyingoffences2010.pdf

  • Pass ten-panel drug screen** Although possession and use of marijuana for certain medical conditions consistent with the requirements of the Colorado Constitution is no longer a crime in the State of Colorado, the possession and use of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Consistent with federal law, including the Controlled Substances Act and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, the use and/or possession of marijuana continues to be prohibited for students seeking admission or enrolled in a health program at Morgan Community College. Therefore a student with a drug screening showing positive for use of marijuana is ineligible for admission and/or continuance in program.
