This industry-focused MS program with a concentration in Health Informatics from Claremont Graduate University (CGU) enables students to understand the critical relationships between information technology (IT) and modern health care.


The health care field is awash in data that have the potential to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and save lives. But data alone are not enough. Converting data to actionable information requires expertise across a range of business intelligence, statistical analysis, and geographic information systems (GIS) tools. 

In partnership with the School of Community and Global Health, you’ll study these tools and more, undertaking technically driven, collaborative research with faculty-scholars who bring impressive professional health care and IT experience to their teaching. You will graduate as a well-trained informatics specialist with strong leadership abilities and the potential to shape health care delivery and practice.

Program Highlights

Well-equipped research clinics and laboratories enable you to work directly on applied and academic research, including:

  • IDEA Lab
  • Intelligent Systems Lab
  • Advanced GIS

You can pursue your Health Informatics MS in conjunction with another degree program at Claremont Graduate University (CGU), such as a PhD in History. You earn a diploma for each degree and  double count some units from one program to the other to decrease your required total units.
