The California College of Ayurveda has a memorandum of understanding with Hindu University of America. Students who wish to receive a Master’s Degree in Ayurveda may apply their credits of study at CCA toward a Master’s degree. Students who wish to receive their Master's degree in Ayurveda need to complete at least our Ayurvedic practitioner program to apply. Hindu University then requires that students complete a course in Hinduism and Sanskrit through their university along with a final research thesis paper or two additional electives. All additional course work can be completed through their distance learning program. Please note that in the United States, a Master’s degree does not afford any additional practice rights. Please note that the Master’s Degree program is administered by Hindu University of America.
