The MHA program is offered in a cohort model.  What is a cohort?

Students take the MHA program with a group of students (cohort) who start, continue, and complete the MHA program together; and the cohort accomplishes the program courses in a predesigned order. Cohorts encourage the establishment of learning communities where students are better able support each other, and to engage in enhanced peer-to-peer learning.

When are classes offered; and are any of the courses online?

The MHA program is designed for the working professional.  Classes are offered in the evening; and students attend classes one night per week.  The MHA curriculum features integrated learning by linking many of the program’s courses; and all courses are offered in a blended format.  In this blended format, usually approximately half of the each of the courses’ classes are on-ground (face-to-face), and half of the classes online. The students accomplish online work during the weeks that they do not meet on-ground. This configuration allows the student to take two integrated courses in a particular semester, while only coming to class one evening per week. 

The integrated courses are linked regarding aspects of course content and learning opportunities. In integrated courses, students explore how diverse healthcare topics and issues are interrelated, and in what ways different academic, technical, and professional skill sets are linked.
