The Graduate Certificate in Health Care Administration is intended for health care workers who desire to enhance their managerial skills, but do not want to complete a 39 credit hour Master's degree program, or who want to 'test the water' before deciding whether to pursue a Master's degree.
Graduate Certificate students who want to preserve the option of eventually earning an MPA degree should consult with their advisor to ensure all or most graduate certificate credits will transfer to the MPA program. Under these conditions, an MPA program can be obtained by successfully completing an additional 18 credits of MPA core courses and the Project Paper Seminar.
Please note: the Graduate Certificate in Health Care Administration is a non-degree seeking program which may not qualify for certain financial aid or scholarships. If you have questions, please contact our office.
