Master of Health Administration, M.H.A.


Due to the consolidation of Georgia Southern University and Armstrong State University, the Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) program will be moving from the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health to the Don and Cindy Waters College of Health Professions effective January 1, 2018.  The program will also be renamed to Master of Health Administration.

With this change, MHA applicants should apply through the Healthcare Administration, Management & Policy Centralized Application Service (HAMPCAS) and not through the Schools of Public Health Application Service (SOPHAS).  The application process for Fall 2018 admission in HAMPCAS is currently open, click here to apply.

The mission of the Master of Healthcare Administration (M.H.A.) degree is to develop leaders who possess the values, knowledge, and skills to manage optimal delivery of healthcare. If you have specific questions related to degree programs, scholarship deadlines, decision letters, etc., please contact the Georgia Southern Office of Graduate Admissions at gradadmissions@georgiasouthern.edu.
