Update: We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2013. We hope to be able to accept applications for Spring 2014. Please check back for further updates.
We are currently accepting online applications through CSU Mentor for the new MS Healthcare Administration FULLY ONLINE program for Fall 2013. This is a separate program from our regular, Hayward based MS HCA program. The required documents (resume, statement of purpose and letters of reference on professional letterhead) must be postmarked or received by the Public Administration Department by 6:00 pm, 5/15/2013. One important requirement for this new program ONLY is that students must have at least 2 years of professional experience in the healthcare field. Preference will be given to students currently employed in healthcare. For complete information about this new program, please go to: http://www.ce.csueastbay.edu/degree/healthcare/index.shtml.
The Department of Public Affairs & Administration at California State University, East Bay offers two graduate programs: a Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) degree and an Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MS HCA.)
Public Administration is a rich and challenging multi-disciplinary field drawing from sociology, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, economics, and urban and organizational studies. The master's degree program provides students with a grounding in major philosophical and social science thinking about the nature of organizations; it helps students to build the intellectual and practical tools they will need to become effective organizational leaders in the public and non-profit sectors. The M.P.A. program is designed to increase the personal and professional effectiveness of people working in public, voluntary, and private organizations. The purpose of the program is to prepare individuals for leadership positions in various organizations with a sense of commitment to social purpose, the public interest, and effective public problem-solving.
The MS-HCA program seeks to develop professionals who understand how to manage non-profit, for-profit, and voluntary health care organizations in effective and innovative ways. The program focuses on the need for health care administrators to be continuous learners, critical thinkers, and ethical practitioners by recognizing the multiply-constructed nature of human, social, and organizational realities and the complex relationships between the system of health providers and the needs of the community.
