Master of Health Administration

Online Program


The online MHA at Hofstra University is built upon an asynchronous learning platform where students complete the 48-credit hour curriculum through a series of weekly modules. Program faculty provide students with learning material (e.g., readings, recorded lectures, and activities), feedback, and guide students through the course content. Students, in turn, complete set, scheduled deliverables during the week and may engage in activities that allow them to interact with their peers. However, students are not required to come to campus and do not attend regularly scheduled classes.

The online MHA program has the same goal as the on-campus program of helping students develop or further develop their health services knowledge, communication skills, and leadership skills to be practice ready health services professionals.


Program structure:

  • Courses are offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
  • Generally 14-15 modules (weeks) in a semester.
  • Students may complete the program in two academic years.
  • The program is offered in a part-time and full-time format; students may switch between the two options.
  • A full-time course load is three classes.
  • Students who work full-time are able to complete the program as full-time students.
  • Many students will have the opportunity to complete internships in the field (can be in the area where they reside).
