Health Informatics Course Offerings and Degree Plans

The Grad­u­ate Cer­tifi­cate in Health­care Infor­mat­ics is three semes­ters, or one full year, assum­ing a stu­dent takes two health infor­mat­ics cours­es each semes­ter. Our Mas­ter of Sci­ence in Health Infor­mat­ics is a two-year pro­gram, pro­vid­ed a stu­dent takes one health infor­mat­ics course per eight-week ses­sion (two cours­es per semes­ter).

Stu­dents may com­plete their pro­gram faster by tak­ing more than one health infor­mat­ics course each eight-week ses­sion upon approval from their stu­dent sup­port spe­cial­ist.
