Advance in a growing industry
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 demand for quality health professionals is on the rise. Building upon our existing expertise in this sector, Saint Joseph's University has created a School of Health Studies and Education, which will officially open in the Fall of 2019. Over 40 existing undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs, including this one, will be housed in this school.

The Health Administration M.S. offers a core curriculum focusing on population and status assessment, health policy, organization development, operations and information systems, legal principles, leadership and more. The curriculum is designed to provide the technical and behavioral competencies as defined by the Health Leadership Competency Model, Version 2 developed by the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL, 2005).
