Program Description

Texas Southern University offers a two-year Master of Science degree in Health Care Administration (MHCA). This pioneer program is jointly sponsored by the Texas Southern University Graduate School and the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Health care will continue to experience change in the near future as the health care delivery system adapts to services that are sensitive to health management as it changes from a biomedical model to a behavioral model.

Navigating this complex, competitive and market driven world of health care requires administrative and leadership skills. Graduates of our Texas Southern University Health Care Administration Program will be prepared to have these skills. With the MHCA degree from Texas Southern University, graduates join a distinguished group of administrators and alumni who demonstrate skill and proficiency as healthcare managers and executives. Health care organizations have long been recognized as being complex organizations. Too few people, including health managers and health consumers, appreciate the complexity of the organizations. A critical part of the solution for health care in America lies in preparing professionals who can manage these organizations and positively impact the health care system. Consequently, the MHCA program at Texas Southern University is designed to prepare students to focus on improvements in the health care system.
