MHA Mission

The mission of the Master of Health Administration (MHA) Program is to enhance the practice, management, leadership and policy of the health and wellness industry by educating a diverse population of students, utilizing professional competencies and enabling them to contribute to solving the health challenges facing our society.

Courses Required for the MHA

The competencies for the Master’s Degree in Health Administration (MHA) graduate program have been established based on best practices recommended by the Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Management, the specialty-accrediting agency, and review of other graduate programs across the country.

The student work will be benchmarked against other programs in the U.S., as the graduate program will be a member of the Association of University Programs in Health Administration, which will provide a forum for faculty to compare and contrast the level of knowledge and competency attainment comparable to traditional education formats.

Courses will be offered in a sequenced format on a phased-in basis as the program is established. The sequential coursework framework means not all courses will be offered each semester. Student advising is essential for effective course planning.
