The MHA program will be completed primarily via an asynchronous online format using the learning management system Canvas in order to provide flexibility and to accommodate the schedules of working professionals. The curriculum is tailored to provide a balance of theoretical, practical, and analytical instruction to prepare students for the unique challenges in the 21st century.
An online introduction to the program includes an orientation, a review of students’ roles and responsibilities in an online instructional environment, important information about accessing South College email and Student Portal accounts, and a discussion and review of South College learning resources and student services.
Course materials and assignments emphasize collaboration, critical thinking, research, and student accountability. The program cumulates with a capstone course which provides a unique opportunity for a thorough investigation of a healthcare administration dilemma, incorporating principles of accounting, finance, marketing, economics, and management concepts and theories.
