Health Care Administration
The Joint Undergraduate-Master's Program (JUMP) is designed to accelerate completion of the Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree by allowing qualified students to count up to 12 hours of graduate courses toward both an undergraduate and the MHA degrees. JUMP-MHA can lead to significant tuition savings when a student graduates with both an undergraduate and MHA degree.
Students may obtain both a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration (HCA) and a Master of Health Administration (MHA) concurrently in the Joint Undergraduate-Masters Progam (JUMP or 5-year BS/MS). To qualify students must have the following:
- Minimum GPA of 3.5
- Minimum of 60 undergraduate hours completed
- Maximum of 90 undergraduate hours completed
- Thirty (30) undergraduate hours must be completed at WKU for eligibility
The Integrated Master's/Bachelor's program is an exciting opportunity for students who excel academically. Students participating in the Joint BS/MS program will be admitted to Graduate Studies and Research at the beginning of the semester in which they complete the total number of credit hours required for the undergraduate degree. For more information about JUMP-MHA, please contact an HCA advisor.
