Health Administration, MHA, and Health Informatics and Analytics, M.S., Dual Degree


The Master of Health Administration (MHA) and Professional Science Master’s in Health Informatics and Analytics (HIA PSM) dual degree program allows students to earn both a Master of Health Administration  and a M.S. in Health Informatics and Analytics  degree.  The MHA and HIA PSM dual degree program (outlined below) consists of 66 credit hours of coursework, in contrast to the 87 credit hours required if these degrees were pursued separately.
