About the Program
The College of Health Professions welcomes career-oriented individuals who want to help shape the direction of health care organizations. Students are sought who bring both a business mind and a commitment to caring for the enterprise, its patients and families, and its employees. Our students gain employment in hospitals, physician practices, long term care settings, and consultant organizations. Our Master of Health Administration program is offered in two formats.
Master of Health Administration – Executive Format
Executive MHA students are working health care professionals who balance their studies with their careers. Instruction is delivered primarily online, allowing students to continue working while completing two to three years of coursework. Students report to campus for a long weekend of study and collaboration once every semester. Graduates complete 54 credit hours; no internship is required.
Master of Health Administration – Residential Format
Residential MHA students require little or no healthcare experience, and engage as full-time students. Classes are conducted face-to-face and we offer many opportunities for real-world learning. Residential MHA students fulfill a six-credit hour internship between their first and second years. Students complete 62 credit hours, including the internship and an interprofessional course.
