College of Tai Chi

Program Objective

The Master's in Tai Chi provides graduate level preparation to a variety of practitioners of internal martial arts who provide educational and managerial leadership to benefit their communities by exposing the general public and martial arts students to the physical, social and health benefits of Tai Chi. Graduates of the program will be able to develop and present community programs in community centers and industry, recommend exercises to alleviate a number of common physical ailments, and manage events to present martial arts in general and Tai Chi in particular to the general public. The degree may qualify the graduate to teaching many institutions of higher education.

Program Description

The program consists of 31 semester units (500 class hours) of lecture and activity courses in the areas of Tai Chi theory and practice, health management and recreation administration. In addition, the degree also requires completion of a Masters Project with rigor consistent with graduate work (3 units and not less than 100 hours of effort), where the culminating experience is a poster presentation.

The range of projects includes (but is not limited to): a web site, in-depth review of literature, business plans, facility feasibility studies, product development, educational materials, fitness programs (pediatric-geriatric), historical analysis, or educational intervention techniques, among others deemed appropriate by the academic advisor. The graduate student and the Dean of the College of Tai Chi agree to individual projects.*

*Note: The College has set a time limit of one calendar year from the date of the presentation for the completion of corrections to the project. If not completed in that time frame a grade of no credit will be given for the project. Graduate students must complete at least 21 units prior to enrollment for project credit.
