Main Content:

This program is no longer accepting students. A Master of Science in Health Informatics program is now available with both on-campus and online options.

All students enrolled in the health information systems concentration are required to complete 41-42 credits. Courses are chosen with an advisor and a Plan of Study will be developed to enable each student to design an in-depth study of Health Informatics taking into account the student’s previous academic preparation and experience.

Most of our courses are only offered once per academic year. If a student fails to successfully complete a course, the student must retake the course the next academic year. Furthermore, this may also prevent the student from registering for the advanced-level courses and delay the date of graduation.

Please also note that you will have a required class that is offered during Summer (view plan of study forms below).

Students will either complete the HIS Plan of Study or the HIS Plan of Study with the RHIA Option.
