Leaders in the current health care delivery environment seek a broad based graduate education that offers the opportunity to assume a leadership role in a health care delivery setting that serves a broader spectrum of the population. This program provides the broad foundation in health services administration that future leaders seek, and also provides choices for a specialized area of expertise. At the master's level, we currently offer concentrations in applied gerontology and long term care administration. Additional concentrations in other areas will be added in the future. 

Coming in 2017, we will begin offering a Ph.D. program in Health Services Research with a concentration in Applied Gerontology.  The focus will be on the applied gerontology practitioner who is interested in making a contribution to the discipline through research, while maintaining their focus on active engagement with the aging population.

The faculty has a vast array of experience in a variety of health care delivery environments, and broad expertise in health care research and policy. In addition, access to a fully online master's program allows working professionals to balance coursework and demanding careers. Students in the online program gain knowledge through applied study of actual cases, discussions, relevant projects, and interactive learning forums.
