Teaching/Learning/Assessment Methods Employed

Consistent with its mission, the MHSA 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.
