Health Administration M.S.

There is never a time when health care professionals are not in demand. At Saint Joseph’s University, the M.S. in health administration is structured primarily for health care professionals with considerable experience in the health delivery system who are interested in the management and administrative aspects of health organizations and the health system. The program offers a core curriculum focusing on population and status assessment, health policy, organization development, operations and information systems, legal principles, leadership and more.

Health care is a rapidly growing industry. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics estimates that about 28 percent of all new jobs created in the U.S. economy in the next decade will be in the areas of health care and social assistance. A master’s degree is required for many positions in these fields and can help increase earning potential.

Graduates of the health administration program have found successful careers at organizations such as Penn Medicine, Merck and area hospitals. With expert faculty as both instructors and mentors, students will graduate with the skills and confidence to achieve and inspire in whatever health administration career they pursue.
