MHS/Ph.D. Dual Degree Program

Program Overview

The accelerated M.H.Sc. and Ph.D. in Health Science is a distance – based, research focused dual program designed for bachelor’s prepared health professionals with diverse work backgrounds who are interested in earning a terminal degree in the field of health science with a core focus in research. The program will prepare graduates to function both independently and interdependently within the clinical and non-clinical research environment.  The dual degree program challenges the student to examine the current state of health care; apply sophisticated knowledge of research design, biostatistics, and epidemiology to the literature of their core discipline; and design and conduct original research in health care.

This accelerated track permits the motivated student to earn both a Masters and Ph.D. degree from a respected, regionally-accredited research institution with 92 credits of course content, completed within 3-7 years of study.
