Master of Health Science

Admissions Requirements

The M.H.Sc. Program will admit health care professionals with diverse undergraduate and professional education, health care work history, and life experiences who have demonstrated capacity to pursue a rigorous course of master's study and increasingly responsible positions in health care.

Prospective M.H.Sc. students are selected by considering the overall qualities of the applicant through application content, academic record, prior health care experience, letters of evaluation, and personal motivation. In special circumstances, a personal interview may be required. Prior to matriculation into the program, applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

Prior health care or health care administrative/management experience is required. The M.H.Sc. is a post-professional degree designed for health practitioners, clinicians, and health care administrators from a wide variety of disciplines. The commonality exhibited by our students is the practice of a recognized health occupation that requires registration, certification, and/or licensure, or the possession of managerial experience in healthcare administration.

All applicants must show evidence of computer skills though coursework or self study skills prior to the end of the first term. Students may obtain instruction through the NSU Computer Laboratory or other training facilities.

The University reserves the right to modify any requirement on an individual basis as deemed necessary by the Dean of the College of Health Care Sciences.
