Healthcare Administration

The 15-credit Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration is ideal for individuals seeking professional development or specialized knowledge in healthcare leadership and management. The certificate courses are offered in on-campus and online formats.

The graduate-level coursework draws upon the rigorous Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree program, which is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education. Through this non-matriculating certificate program, you can develop the professional skills that will help you stand above the rest in your chosen profession. Plus, you can apply credits earned in the certificate program toward the MHA degree if you choose to continue your education.
