Curriculum

Business as usual doesn’t exist in healthcare.
That’s OK — you’ll be ready.

Health administration is a living, breathing profession — which means our curriculum needs to be, too. Coursework for this program is designed with the forward-thinking professional in mind, because we know that change is coming, and we want you to be confident in your ability to lead it.

Your curriculum: Designed by us. Made for you.

Complete 14 courses (42 credits) and specialize your career with one of our health administration concentrations: Health Informatics and Data Analytics, Healthcare Compliance and Risk Management or Population Health. Of the courses you need to complete the program, two will be specific to your chosen concentration.

There is a required three-day on-campus residency prior to graduation that offers you an opportunity to network with classmates, faculty, industry experts and prospective employers.

To prepare for future accreditation, the MHA program curriculum and competency framework align with the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) accreditation requirements and the Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLC) Competency Model.

Time to completion: 6 semesters
