Union College further expands healthcare related education programs with the introduction of a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration program in January, 2019.

The Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MHCA) is designed to target the needs of healthcare professionals entering or planning to enter the field of healthcare administration. Courses in Union College’s new Master of Science in Healthcare Administration range from Evidence-base Healthcare and Informatics, to Ethics and Social Responsibility.

“Our new Master of Science in Healthcare Administration is the result of collaboration between the Edna Jenkins School of Nursing and the School of Professional and Graduate Studies at Union College,” said Dr. Marisa Greer, Dean of the Edna Jenkins School of Nursing. “We are excited to further expand the quality healthcare related programs we offer at Union College.”

The Union College MHCA is a 30-hour (10 course) program offered to students in a delivery mode that is completely online. The program is scheduled to begin in January, 2019, with enrollment already open.

The MHCA follows Union’s standard online course model. Classes are completed on convenient eight-week schedules, and can be completed in less than two years. The Program of coursework includes 12-hours of core management coursework and 18-hours of discipline specific healthcare management coursework.

“We are excited to offer this level of quality master program to the employees of our Union College Business Partners, our former students in the healthcare industry, and healthcare professionals throughout the region,” said Dr. David Williams, Dean of the School of Professional and Graduate Studies.
