Graduate programs in Health Policy and Administration

Penn State’s graduate programs in Health Policy and Administration (HPA) provide a solid foundation for students who want to profoundly shape health policy, make vital future changes to global health-related organizations, and successfully navigate our increasingly complex health care environment — including managing the facilities, services, programs, staff, and budgets that providers rely on.

HPA offers three flexible graduate programs

 

The esteemed faculty members in all three programs train graduates to meet the fast-growing demand for health care administrators that play crucial roles in today’s hospitals, health systems, and related organizations, as well as policymakers and health service researchers in government, private industry, and academia. Synergies among our diverse degree programs provide the foundation for our ever-growing curriculum, outreach programs, and a body of cutting-edge research that often receives recognition on a national stage.
