Jacklyn from Kenmore, WA
I am a graduate of the Herbal Sciences Bachelor's of Science program, and just entered the Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine Master's of Science program. My journey at Bastyr has been enlightening and I have learned more than I could have ever possibly imagined. Bastyr provides one with the necessary skills to become a natural health practitioner in the changing world of healthcare and medicine. The medicinal herb garden and surrounding forest provide a spectacular living classroom, and provide a natural ambiance that makes pulling into campus each day a delight. I am grateful that such an institution exists.
Shelagh from Seattle, Wa
The atmosphere of the San Diego Campus of Bastyr is small, warm, and family like. The class size and small campus gives us a chance to get to know each other.

Bastyr University is a remarkable school, geared towards the health sciences. They promote a naturalistic view of just about anything you study there. The sense of community is possibly the best part, joining this school is like becoming a new member of a health oriented family.
