The program consists of one (1) prerequisite course, ten (10) core courses and one (1) capstone course. The prerequisite course may be waived for persons having a similar course elsewhere.
Waivers are not granted for non-academic prior learning, and are determined solely on the basis of the student’s undergraduate or graduate record. All waivers require written approval by the advisor.
Students are expected to be familiar with office/management level software.
Students may take courses in any sequence subject to the following general requirements:
- Students must observe prerequisites. Courses taken without the proper prerequisites will not be applicable to the student’s degree requirements unless written approval is obtained from the student’s advisor.
- HCAD 984 Seminar in Healthcare Administration must be taken in the final semester of the program. Exceptions, requiring written advisor approval, may be made for students taking an elective course over the summer. Registration for the seminar requires prior written permission from the Dean of Graduate Studies (see Seminar Approval Form). Students will not be permitted to fulfill this requirement with a course transferred from another institution.
