The Health Services Research, Policy & Administration (HSRPA) MS program teaches you the knowledge and skills to be a health analyst and researcher who develops evidence used in research, clinical, business, research, and policy environments. You’ll examine the causes and correlations of health outcomes, as well as quality and costs in organizational and policy contexts, such as public reporting and payment policies.
The 34-credit program has a robust, multidisciplinary core curriculum that provides the foundation for conducting health services research and health analytics. Full-time students can complete the program in just one year. We also offer flexible part-time options to meet students’ scheduling needs and professional aspirations, including a selection of both on-campus and online courses.
Students gain a firm understanding of the structure and delivery of health care and the determinants of health, along with the research, analytic, and communication skills to make positive changes in population health. Through a final project, students apply the methods of health data analytics and their classroom learning to a real world public health problem.
