The Master’s of Science degree in Health Science with a concentration in Administration provides the opportunity to pursue graduate studies that augment current skills and meet the needs of individuals who desire a Master's degree for personal advancement. The program has required Health Science courses to assure that the student has a strong background in behavioral sciences, quantitative analyses, and program planning appropriate to Master's level graduate training. Supporting coursework should be selected through discussion with the faculty advisor. If consistent with her/his goals, the student may complete a Thesis or Project at the end of the program to demonstrate his/her ability to independently conduct research on a professional level and according to graduate standards.
It is suggested that the student consider skills and roles to be performed in a future position, when deciding which electives to take. For a basic business background, it is recommended (but not required) that students consider coursework in Accounting/Finance, Marketing or Management.
Suggested Course Sequence
Each student is required by the Office of Graduate Studies to file a Program of Study with the Program Director. To assist students in developing their own programs of study, a proposed course sequence has been developed. This sequence should be used along with faculty advisement when preparing a Program of Study. It is not meant to be the only sequence available to the student. Course offerings may vary from semester to semester and require you to follow an alternate plan. Students are encouraged to enroll in HLTH 633, 615 and 617 as their first courses.
