Matheson Center For Health Care Studies

Health Services Administration (HSA) masters program

The Governor Scott M. Matheson Center for Health Care Studies administers this program, which was approved by the State Board of Regents in 1984. Its purpose is to prepare graduates from a variety of disciplines to better apply the skills of their discipline to the health care delivery system. The program is a dual credential program and not a dual degree program.

This program is open only to students concurrently enrolled in an affiliated master's level program, and normally requires half a year of academic work beyond that expected for the affiliated degree. Students successfully completing both programs are awarded a dual credential: for example, the diploma and transcript for an MBA/HSA student reads "Master of Business Administration/Health Services Administration."

The affiliated degrees are in the departments of Anthropology, Business (MBA), Economics, Health Education, Biomedical Informatics, Nursing, Pharmacy, Political Science (MPA), Family and Preventive Medicine (MSPH, MPH), and Social Work.
