Academic Advising

We’re here for you

Earning a Master of Health Administration (MHA) is rewarding, but it is also challenging. That’s why we make sure supports are in place to help you get the most out of your experience. Every MHA student is matched with a faculty advisor for support, academic counselling and career counselling.

New students are also partnered with a second-year student before orientation. The second-year students offer advice and insight into the MHA program, and act as unofficial tour guides to Halifax and Dalhousie.

Advice and mentorship

Your faculty advisor will meet with you at the beginning of the year, and will be accessible as needed via email, telephone or by appointment. You should consult your faculty advisor on a variety of topics, including:

  • suggestions for mentors
  • topics for course projects and papers
  • academic matters such as selection of electives
  • directed studies
  • residency opportunities

Have a question? Please ask

Throughout your program, you are encouraged to network and seek the advice of mentors, preceptors and alumni members. Do not hesitate to contact your advisor with questions at any time.

If you’re ever unsure who you should go to for advice on a particular matter, please contact us.
