The College of Nursing and Health Professions offers three options for a Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree (MHA 4+1, MHA, and MHA-Health Informatics Specialty). The MHA program will educate students for leadership roles in health care.
Regardless of the chosen option, the MHA degree is 39 credit hours. The MHA and the MHA-Health Informatics Specialty options are primarily delivered online with the exception of three intensive meetings. The 4+1 MHA option is held on the USI campus.
MHA Program Mission
The mission of the MHA program is to equip students with competencies, skills, and knowledge necessary to achieve and sustain leadership roles in the dynamic, growing field of healthcare. The program’s curriculum is based on evidence based practice enriched by fully integrated research activities with faculty and community partners.
MHA Program Vision
We strive to become a premiere provider of transformational healthcare leaders who positively impact the organizations they lead and the communities they serve.
The MHA4+1 Option allows current USI undergraduate students of any discipline the opportunity to earn both the Bachelor’s degree and the MHA degree in 5 years.
