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 sixteen months.

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 five years.

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

The Master of Health Administration degree features both an academic and results-oriented curriculum. It requires the successful completion of 15 three-credit hour courses and a six-credit hour Health Administration Residency. Please refer to the courses section for program requirements.
