Healthcare facilities are increasingly complex to manage due to a number of factors: increased governmental regulation, demand for accountability, advances in healthcare technology, the changing demographics of the country, and the variety of reimbursement systems. There is a pressing need for qualified healthcare administrators to plan, organize, direct, and control their organization's resources. Career opportunities abound for capable, highly skilled individuals. To help meet this need, the Master in Health Administration program in the College of Health Professions offers the MHA degree in two formats: one is a full-time traditional day program (residential format) and one is an executive format, which includes blended courses which have on-campus classes over an extended weekend with online delivery of remaining content, as well as courses with only online course delivery. The residential MHA program consists of 62 semester hours: 53 semester hours of core coursework, 3 elective hours, and 6 hours of field experience. The executive MHA consists of 54 semester hours: 51 hours of core coursework and 3 hours of elective coursework. While both programs are designed to develop the healthcare leaders of tomorrow, the Executive program is designed for working healthcare professionals who wish to continue working and while pursuing their education to advance their careers.
