Health Administration at Illinois

Our two-year, 52 credit hour, residential Health Administration degree has been modeled after general business administration curriculums; giving students educational training in finance, leadership/management, quality and strategic planning. Our degree includes a 200-hour internship, where students apply their learning to benefit an organization of their choosing. The Illinois Master of Health Administration program believes in creating a supportive learning environment and has established a cohort model for students; students will be with the same classmates throughout their time in the Master of Health Administration program. 

The Illinois Master of Health Administration program combines the benefits of a small program with the resources and opportunities of a leading research university. Established in 2017, this newer program allows students to be at the cutting edge of newly developed classes and curriculum, with instructors who are leaders in the field.  Our small program size allows students to easily connect with the supportive faculty and be surrounded by a tight-knit cohort of peers. We welcome students from a wide variety of disciplines and training to join our diverse cohort of Master of Health Administration students.
