Master of Health Administration Curriculum
The MHA degree is a 50 hour program which is completed by full time students in 21 months beginning in the fall semester. Students with little or no healthcare management experience are encouraged to pursue full-time coursework. The program also includes a summer internship between the first and second years of coursework.
The MHA program is principally designed for full-time students; however, an alternative model of the same curriculum is available for individuals who are working in local healthcare organizations and wish to pursue the MHA-degree on a part-time basis.
Our MHA curriculum is designed around a set of competencies that healthcare executives and faculty jointly have agreed are essential in the 21st century. This illustrates the commitment to a strong academic-practitioner partnership that characterizes the UK MHA program.
