About

The School of Public Administration's Master of Health Administration program at The University of New Mexico was created to meet the significant and unmet need for graduate-level professional education for administrative and clinical personnel of health service organizations.

Overview

Master of Health Administration (MHA)

The Health Administration curriculum at The University of New Mexico  is designed to address the particular cost, quality, and access needs of the healthcare industry. The curriculum focuses on healthcare policy and administration issues facing health services organizations, such as health analytics, health care finance, quality improvement, management, and leadership. The MHA coursework reflects the needs of our region's Hispanic, Native American, rural, and low-income populations. The goal of the MHA program is to produce culturally competent, evidence-based managers and leaders who seek to improve and transform the health of the populations served by their organizations. 

Course Formats

To address the needs of our extensive region and diverse student body, the MHA program is offered in both traditional and synchronous-online formats. Albuquerque-based students attend classes on the main campus of UNM. Distance students attend these same classes, at the same time, using an online learning portal. To accommodate mid-career professionals, all of our classes are offered at either 4:00 PM or 7:00 PM, Monday through Thursday. (Some electives courses are also offered on Saturdays at 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM.)
