University of Regina / University of Saskatchewan – Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

Master of Health Administration (MHA)

In June 2007, the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS) was established as a joint collaboration between the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, after extensive consultation with senior leaders in government, industry and academia. Since then the JSGS has swiftly become one of Canada’s leading policy schools for educating graduate students and public servants interested in and devoted to advancing public value.

The Master of Health Administration (MHA) is a part-time, course-based master’s degree available through the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy’s University of Regina campus. It is offered primarily online and is designed to combine the rigor of traditional graduate work with the flexibility of distance studies. In addition to their online coursework, students attend two brief (three day) in-person Residencies where they have the opportunity to network with colleagues and faculty. The MHA student body includes professionals from all across Canada working in diverse areas of health care including clinical and administrative roles.  It provides these adult learners with an opportunity to pursue personal and professional advancement through graduate studies while continuing work in their chosen fields. The MHA is focused on strengthening health system leaders of today and tomorrow.  It aims to prepare its graduates for leadership positions that require management and strategic abilities, policy knowledge and skills, and overall analytical and evaluation abilities.
