Master of Science Program Requirements

Twelve courses (36 credits) must be completed successfully to qualify for the Master of Science degree in Health Care Administration and Management.

A three-credit internship of 120 hours may be taken in a variety of administrative settings, such as hospitals, homecare facilities, mental health facilities, long-term care facilities, regulatory agencies, third-party payers, proprietary and nonproprietary systems, state and national associations. Students learn about and appreciate administrative intricacies while applying knowledge and talents developed during coursework. Internships are pursued in fields where students are likely to direct their future activities or where they may develop expertise in supplementary areas for policy or consulting. Students discuss possibilities with the graduate program director, assess their suitability to career plans, and develop specific proposals for placement. An additional elective course may be substituted for the internship if the graduate program director determines the student already possesses sufficient administrative experience.

Possible Electives

Students must also complete one elective course (3 credits). Possible elective courses follow. With the graduate program director’s approval, other graduate level courses may be substituted.
