Master of Health Administration (MHA)

The MHA program offered through the School is available onsite, on either a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students normally complete the program in two years.

A part-time student may enrol in up to two and one-half credits in any one academic year. In order to ensure that graduate students benefit from a reasonable concentration of their studies, part-time studies must normally be completed within six years.

The MHA program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CA+HME). The MHA at Dalhousie University is one of only three programs in Canada with the prestigious CA+HME Accreditation.

The Master of Health Administration degree features both an academic and results-oriented curriculum. It requires the successful completion of 54 to 66 credit hours. Please refer to the courses section for program requirements.
