Minneapolis, MN (October 30, 2013) - Healthcare is America's fastest-growing employment sector, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the explosive growth of the workforce has demand for qualified health and human services leaders and administrators at an all-time high. To meet the need, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota is making its popular Master of Arts in Health and Human Services Administration degree program – and the optional Human Services specialization – available entirely online, giving students anywhere in the world the opportunity to receive advanced leadership and management training customized to the needs of the healthcare and human services industry.
"The online Master of Arts in Health and Human Services Administration is built on a foundation of leadership for a rapidly changing industry," says Merri Moody, Dean of the Graduate School of Health and Human Services. "Our students will develop strong administrative skills rooted in practical and theoretical competence to lead wonderfully diverse teams to success. Our graduates will have the resource management skills to help build and maintain an organization that is sound and sustainable. These skills can be immediately applied to healthcare and human services organizations, extended care facilities, government, and in many other healthcare and human services settings.”
