Master of Science Program

submenu

There are two Master of Science options: MS Plan A and MS Plan B. Plan A is research-oriented, and is designed primarily for health professionals who are seeking additional training in health informatics. Plan B is course-oriented, and is intended for non-health professionals who wish to be trained in this area but need additional coursework to become fully qualified. Both programs are 36 credits that can be completed in as little as two years at a full-time pace.

The following plans of study list the required courses for each degree plan. These plans of study were updated in September 2014 to reflect the Fall 2014 requirements. Your requirements may be different depending on which semester you started the program. Please see the student handbook for more information.
