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.

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.
Joint-degree program candidates must go through the formal admission process for the MHA program and should contact the MHA Interim Program Director, Mary Von, at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the application process, which begins in November each year. Applicants are evaluated using the same criteria established for the general MHA degree.
