What to Look For
You should make sure to contact multiple schools, so you can compare their requirements, offerings, cost, and so on. There are many differences between the schools, even for identical programs.
Some of the key things to ask the schools about include:
- Tuition (of course) - Make sure to check in with schools about their financial aid programs. For undergraduate degrees, many schools offer grants and scholarships, both need-based and merit. Graduate programs tend to have less scholarship and grant opportunities, but may offer either as part of a financial aid package.
- Admissions Requirements - Health administration covers quite a broad range of specializations and degrees. Depending on whether you’re pursuing a Bachelor (BA/BS), Master of Health Administration (MHA), Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of Business Administration (MBA), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), Doctor of Health Administration (DHA), Doctor of Public Health (DrPH), or Doctor of Science (ScD), requirements such as prior courses, exam scores, and work experience will vary considerably.
- Scheduling - There are many different options for programs across the diverse degrees and specializations within health administration. Find out if a program is available on campus or online; full-time or part-time; or some combination.
- Specializations - Health administration degrees boast a wide range of specialties within management, public health, informatics, and more. Determining which specialization best suits both your career goals and prior experience, will help you determine the program and school that will offer you the best fit.
