Part‑time students

A professional program that fits into your life

We welcome part-time students. In fact, for decades, part-time students have been a strength of our Master of Health Administration (MHA) program, bringing real-world experience into the classroom.

Many of our part-time students work full-time—adding an MHA increases opportunities for career advancement or maybe even a complete career change. Others choose to take MHA courses part time while on parental leave, while balancing family care-giving, or other responsibilities and activities. You can switch back and forth between full-time and part-time studies as you complete your MHA.

We are experienced in working with both full- and part-time students, and will do our best to accommodate changing work, family and life situations.

Considering part-time studies?

Our staff and faculty mentors will work with you to design a plan that works for you—generally, part-time students complete 1 to 2 courses per term, instead of 3 to 5. All requirements are expected to be completed within 6 years.

Flexible residency arrangements are also available for part-time students. While full-time students usually complete a 4-month residency during the summer between Year 1 and Year 2, part-time students may take up to 18 months to do so. Find out more about residency.

Taking on an MHA program while continuing to work full-time is a substantial commitment, and it isn’t for everyone. But, if you’re ambitious and dedicated, the program will set you up for a future that may have otherwise never been available to you.
