Students are accepted from all undergraduate disciplines and professional areas; however,
the program faculty determines if students must complete up to nine (9) hours of prerequisite
course work before being fully admitted into the program.
All students entering the MHA Program should be competent in word processing, spreadsheet
and data analysis software packages. Students who do not demonstrate competence in
these computer skills will be encouraged to take the short courses on these subjects
offered by the Information Technology Division of the University of Memphis.
The Master of Health Administration degree at The University of Memphis is a 51 semester
hour degree program (not including required prerequisites as determined by the faculty.)
