This profession has experienced a strong resurgence in the past decade. The profession stresses a holistic approach to health. Chiropractors advocate that most common ills can be prevented and/or alleviated through exercise, nutrition, adjustment, maintenance, and personal health counseling.

Minnesota West-Worthington campus provides all of the academic courses for the first two years of the chiropractic program. The transfer institutions (primarily Northwestern School of Chiropractics) for continued study readily accept our Associate in Science degree graduates. This program does not meet the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) requirements.

Students interested in this degree should choose the Liberal Arts major on the application.
