MHA Joint-Degree Programs

Students from the clinical programs at Pacific University's College of Health Professions may apply to a joint-degree program after successfully completing the first year of their clinical program.

They may earn the master of health administration (MHA) degree concurrently or immediately following completion of the clinical degree. These joint-degree programs fit the mission of interprofessional education within the MHA program, the College of Health Professions, and Pacific University.

Joint-degree students are able to complete the MHA coursework in three semesters (a total of 33 credit hours) because 15 credits of the clinical curriculum are applied to the MHA program.

Any students interested in taking a clinical joint-degree option will need to live within commuting distance of the Pacific University Hillsboro Campus while completing the coursework for the MHA.
