Courses

The 36-hour Master of Science in Health Services Administration consists of 24-hours of core and 12 concentration hours. The accelerated delivery provides five course start times per year (only Health Data Analytics concentration is accelerated in Fall 2017). Courses can be offered in 8-weeks sessions during the long semester or shorter during the summer session. Some courses will still be offered in a 16-week semester format to facilitate student mastery of instructional content. Students who maintain the accelerated course sequence can complete course work in 16 months.
