Master of Health Administration (MHA) Thesis Option

The School offers an MHA thesis option that typically is open to one to three new students per year. Thesis option students are expected to complete their MHA within a similar time frame as course-work MHA students, this is normally 20 months for full time students although the time period may be longer for thesis students. Student research topics should be consistent with the School’s research strategy and the availability of research advisors. Research topics should be interdisciplinary where appropriate and grounded in the field experience. Course work and Thesis Option MHA students would complete the same first 10 required MHA courses. Admittance into the Thesis Option would occur only after completion of the 10 required courses.
