Since 1980, the Health Advocacy Program—the nation’s first master’s degree program in the field—has been educating professionals to improve health care and ensure access to an increasingly complex system. By integrating analytical discussions of issues that face the nation’s health care system with hands-on experiential fieldwork assignments, students are prepared to influence health policy at the systems level and to serve individuals with health care advising and advocacy.
Our student body is a balanced mix of young people recently out of college and career-changers with experience and degrees in business, arts, law, and health care.
