LEWISTON – Niagara University has announced that it will begin offering a new master’s program in health care administration in the fall. Applications are already being accepted.
The 42-credit program requires completion of 14 graduate-level courses. In addition to the coursework and a hands-on course, students also must complete 24 hours of service with a community health organization, which reflects Niagara University’s Vincentian mission.
The program is offered through the university’s College of Business Administration and will provide the knowledge and skills necessary to work as administrators in a variety of health care settings. Resources for the courses are being provided through the university’s College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Nursing.
Dr. Kristine Principe, program director, called the program an outstanding opportunity to learn from accomplished faculty members in business, nursing and natural sciences.
