All students enrolled in Master of Health Science degree programs are required to complete an 18-credit set of graduate core courses. Several of these courses, including:
Health Science Research Methods (MHLTHSCI 505),Applied Statistical Methods (MHLTHSCI/KINES 552),Program Evaluation in the Health Sciences (MHLTHSCI 555),and Managerial Epidemiology (MHLTHSCI 579),combine to give MHS graduates an excellent understanding of how research and evaluation are conducted in the health arena.
Health Care Systems Organization and Administration (MHLTHSCI 520) gives a thorough overview of the health services delivery system in the United States, and Ethics and Health Policy (MHLTHSCI 535) addresses a number of fundamental concerns (such as health policy decision-making, quality of care issues) in the service delivery and health sectors.
The Assessment class (Capstone Course; MHLTHSCI 600) ties together what students have learned in the graduate core courses, and allows students to demonstrate their expertise across a variety of domains.
Because we consider each course in the graduate core to be foundational, we do not allow substitutions for these courses except in extraordinary circumstances.
