Master’s program meets working students’ needs
Healthy Times, Winter 2002
It’s not easy to pursue a master’s degree while working full-time. For many, the time demanded can make it seem like an impossible goal. That’s why the University of Detroit Mercy designed its master’s program in Health Services Administration to make optimal use of technology and class time.
Students periodically meet for intense weekend and evening classes, but a great deal of the program’s coursework is conducted online. Although that means these students spend less time on campus than others, they still receive the individualized attention from faculty and administrators that’s the hallmark of a UDM education.
“Our approach is very personal,” notes Mary Kelly, R.S.M, Health Services Administration chair, “even when we’re not there ‘in-person.’”
