About

The mission of the Health Administration program at Pennsylvania State University is to further student knowledge and skills in a continuous learning cycle. Students are expected not only to know the existing health system, but are to develop a capability for design consistent with demands of access to care, management, and control of costs and quality of care delivery.

Overview

Recognizing that the national health care system is in a period of reform and redesign, the program emphasis involves design/redesign in a 36-credit curriculum. Based on eight core courses defined as the foundation of administration in health care, the degree is designed for part-time professional students already engaged in health administration careers. 

Part-time students may start the program at the beginning of any semester. They usually take one or two 3-credit courses each semester. The program is offered at Pennsylvania State University.

Students may also take one or two courses during the summer session to maintain steady progress toward the degree. All Health Administration courses are available during the evening for the convenience of part-time students. A student may complete the Health Administration on a part-time basis in about two to four years.
