Improve the Lives of Others as a Chiropractor

Chiropractors enjoy a rewarding and stable career addressing the health needs of people who wish to work with a health professional who will treat their injuries or ailments non-surgically and without prescription drugs. The Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) and the University of Houston-Clear Lake have established a Cooperative Doctor of Chiropractic Master's of Science in Biology Degree Program to ensure your skills encompass both the physiological and clinical needs of your patients.

Your Career Helps People Return to Health and Mobility

As chiropractic care becomes more widespread, your skills will equip you for new and exciting opportunities that continue to open for those who obtain the Doctor of Chiropractic degree. As the average life expectancy of the population increases, more people will be turning to chiropractors for care and treatment. This degree plan will help you prepare for a successful life as a chiropractor by delivering a course of study that is practical, rooted in scientific principles and packed with hands-on education experiences.
