How long does the program take?
DMU’s M.H.A. program offers flexible enrollment, allowing students to earn their degree in as little as two years. Its year-round calendar is based on three 12-week terms. Students earn 48 total credit hours in 20 courses – 45 academic course credit hours and a required three-credit-hour Field Based Learning or Long Term Care Internship. This required class is to be completed in-person, at an organization of the student’s choice, including any current places of employment.
Online seminars and development
Students who enroll in the fully online course model participate in seminars that connect them with other members of the health care industry. Within these teams, students collaborate to address issues, solve problems and enhance real-world organizations with their work.
