With both a Doctor of Pharmacy and a Master of Science in Health Administration degree, you’ll gain the financial, management and administrative skills needed to keep major health care companies and organizations running smoothly and efficiently.

Students can earn a Master of Science in Health Services Administration degree by completing 12 graduate courses listed under the program requirements tab, seven of which can be fulfilled through required and elective Pharm.D. courses.
