Herbalist education program, which have been successfully implemented in U.S and Australia is recently drawing attention in Korea. The objective of this study is to suggest the fundamental data in order to propose the future direction of herbalist education programs in Korea. This study first examines a trend toward increasing demand in the domestic and global well-being industry. Then, several representative herbalist programs in college and university in the U.S and Australia are investigated including curriculum, application requirements and tuition fee.

Therefore, Korea should exert itself to internationalization, encouraging participation in international herbal science activities and a lot of professional education programs suitable for Korean circumstance and characteristics should be carried out.
