Application for the Master in Health Administration - Residential


Health care 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 health care administrators to plan, organize, direct, and control the 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 two formats, one in a full-time traditional day program (residential format) and one in an executive format via on-line course delivery. The residential MHA curriculum consists of 62 semester hours, 53 of core courses, 3 of electives and 6 in field experience.


An applicant to the Master in Health Administration program must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher learning. Applicants are preferred who demonstrate a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher in all baccalaureate studies. Any previous graduate work should reflect a GPA of 3.0 or above. Eligibility for admission is based on the GPA, the GRE or GMAT, the personal statement and 3 references. Admission requirements can be found at
