The College of Staten Island offers a program leading to the degree of Master of Science in Healthcare Management -- an enormously important and rapidly growing business sector. The degree provides specialized content for those working in health care, and those who wish to enter the healthcare industry. It is designed for new graduates and midcareer professionals to acquire in-depth training in the area of management focused on the needs of healthcare providers. We welcome students from a range of disciplines such as dentistry, gerontology, medicine, nursing, nutrition, occupational and physical therapies, pharmacy, and social work as well as students who are non-clinical professionals working in health care or who have an interest in working in the healthcare industry.

Students in the Master's degree program in Healthcare Management are required to take 33 credit hours, or 11 courses at 3 credits each, at the graduate level. The MS program is designed to 1) help newly promoted and rising healthcare professionals to make an effective transition from clinical and technical roles into broader managerial roles, and 2) enable people with an educational or professional background in business to apply business knowledge to the healthcare industry.
