You will acquire skills in management, policy and health care organization with the following degree options:
Two-year Master of Health Administration
The standard degree program is a two-year, 60-credit, non-thesis professional graduate program culminating in a Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree. Your course work will include classes in management, health care delivery and finance, population health, quantitative analysis and methods, law and ethics, accounting, economics, health policy, and strategic management.
Three-Year MHA/MPA Program
A joint MHA/MPA degree option is available for students in the Sloan Program in Health Administration (Sloan) and the MPA Program.
