Prerequisite courses for the Therapeutic Massage Program can be taken on any CCRI campus. The Therapeutic Massage program courses are offered in an evening/weekend format on the Newport County Campus. Schedules for fieldwork experiences may vary and opportunities for days, evenings and weekends may exist.
The Therapeutic Massage Program integrates classroom preparation and clinical practice. General education courses such as English Composition, Oral Communication, Human Anatomy and Physiology, Algebra, and Psychology enhance the therapeutic massage core courses. The core courses include laboratory sessions to learn and practice hands on skills required to be a Massage Therapist. The AAS degree students have 1- 2 internship experiences in various settings to practice skills learned in the classroom.
