Credit Hours: 52
Entry Term: Fall
Health administration is an interdisciplinary field of expertise that focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary for the effective administration, management and leadership of health services delivery organizations, including hospitals, medical practices, long-term care facilities, consulting firms, etc. Professionals that work in this field must possess a thorough understanding of the organizational, financial, legal/regulatory and managerial components of health services delivery as they pertain to a dynamic and rapidly evolving health care system.
The MHA curriculum focuses its teaching, learning, and assessment methods on the preparation of early-to-mid careerists for a broad range of professional employment opportunities across the continuum of health services delivery. Small class sizes (typically 15 or fewer) allow for significant use of team-based activities as well as project-based assignments that allow students to gain real-world experience while in the program. The program’s capstone requirement provides opportunities for students to identify, conceptualize, and execute a project of strategic importance to the field of health administration.
The Master of Health Administration program prepares a highly qualified, diverse group of early-to-mid careerist students for increasingly responsible leadership roles in the administration of health services delivery across the continuum of the health services industry.
