The full-time graduate program in health services administration prepares students for administrative and executive positions in health care organizations. Four consecutive semesters of intensive coursework are completed on campus and followed by an eight- to 12-month administrative residency. Students are also required to complete a master's project. The coursework provides students with broad-based skills and knowledge that prepare them for careers in any area of health care management. The residency enables them to focus on particular areas they would like to explore and develop.

Executive MHSA Option

Overview | Course Sequence

The Executive MHSA program enables individuals who are already working in health care to learn the administrative skills they need to progress in their careers and increase their value to their employers. This track also prepares students to learn new skills that will move them into a different career direction.

Under the Executive MHSA option, students complete nine consecutive semesters, including summer coursework on campus. Students are also required to complete a master's thesis.  The thesis is a culminating scholarly activity requiring literature review, collection and analysis of data and discussion of results.
