All courses are led by experts in their field whose lessons focus on strategic planning, financial management, healthcare policy, public health, human resource management, patient safety, critical thinking skills, healthcare delivery, and other examples of practical knowledge valued by healthcare organizations.

Admission to Roberts Wesleyan University's MSHA program requires that the prospective Master of science earner has a bachelor's degree in a business, clinical, IT, or healthcare-related field from an accrediting body. Additionally, they must have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and two years' worth of experience in a health care environment.

While our health care administration courses can cost upwards of $38,000, we also provide several financial aid options and payment plans to help our graduate students stand out in their chosen career paths.

While the in-person class benefits from direct interaction with your professor, our online courses can fit neatly into any working professional's schedule.

The online healthcare administration course is structured into several in-depth courses that provide expert instruction on skills valued in the healthcare and business space, such as strategic planning, public health, standard healthcare policy, and the inner workings of several healthcare systems.

Each module is learned one at a time in consecutive order, with each new lesson building on what the previous one taught. Overall, the entire online course takes 5 - 8 weeks to complete.
