Health Informatics Curriculum

The online master’s in health informatics is a rigorous program rooted in The University of Scranton’s Jesuit values of ethics and education for justice. The interdisciplinary program includes courses developed by faculty from the Panuska College of Professional Studies, the AACSB-accredited Kania School of Management, and the College of Arts and Sciences. Our curriculum draws on the global knowledge of our expert faculty to develop graduates who can strategically lead the healthcare organizations of the future.

The program of study consists of eleven, three-credit hour courses, for a total of 33 graduate credit hours. Each course is offered online in an eight-week format. Courses are offered sequentially and support cumulative learning in three core facets: information systems, informatics and information technology.

Our two foundational modules are designed to ground you in both healthcare and information technology. If you have no background in either of these areas, you will complete our introductory healthcare and/or computer information technology modules to provide you with the fundamentals to be successful in our program.

The capstone course at the end of the program provides the opportunity to use learning from previous courses for a precepted experience to complete an applied health informatics project.
