But with 29 other degree and certificate offerings, no matter what future you dream of — whether it’s a doctorate in chiropractic, or an associate or bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree in business administration, health care, or many other fields of study — that dream can become a reality at Parker.

Faculty experts are dedicated to helping students discover their path in life. Parker students are ambitious, compassionate, energetic, and prepared to become industry leaders. Founder Dr. James Parker established a set of principles that guide the university today, on a campus steeped in tradition while encouraging innovation.

Parker is home to three colleges. The College of Health Sciences (CHS) offers the ACOTE-accredited occupational therapy assistant program; the radiologic technology program; and the COMTA-accredited massage therapy program, and will soon include a Spanish dual-language massage therapy certificate. In addition, the CHS offers bachelor’s degrees in psychology, integrative health, anatomy, and general education.

The College of Business and Technology offers an MBA degree in healthcare management, a computer information system degree and certificates, and a CAHIIM-accredited health information management program.

The College of Chiropractic, originally named Parker College, opened on September 12, 1982, and quickly became a leader in the chiropractic profession. It employs technologically advanced resources, including ParkerFit3D program that accurately captures and analyzes human motion. The college initiated a master’s degree in neuroscience in January 2019, focusing on neurorehabilitation.
