Curriculum Overview

 

The Master of Health Administration program is a two-year, 52 credit hour, residential program modeled after general business administration curriculums. The program curriculum gives students educational training in courses on Health Economics, Finance, Operations, Policy, and Strategic Planning.  The program includes two required professional experiences:

  • Applied Practice Experience (APE): a 200-hour internship in the health administration field in the summer, between year one and two. During this time, students will apply their academic knowledge to benefit an organization of their choosing
  • Integrated Learning Experience (ILE): a project-based capstone completed in the final semester Spring semester of the program.

The program believes in creating a supportive learning environment and has established a cohort-model for students. Students move through our program as a cohort but choose electives tailored to their interests during their second year, with a wide variety of choices in our curriculum and from departments across campus.
