The Master of Health Informatics (MHI) program is mainly a course-based curriculum. In order to graduate, students are required to complete the following:

  • 7 core courses 
  • Two electives
  • One 12-16 week (420 hours) practicum course (PHS 641)

There is no research/thesis option.

The MHI courses for full-time and part-time students are supported by self-directed learning and offered through online or blended (on-campus and online) formats.

The MHI degree will be completed within two years for full-time students (three terms per year). Part-time students must complete their degree within four years of initial program entry. All graduate students must maintain continuous registration for each term of the program.

While in the program, students should expect to spend 12-15 hours per week on each course. For a full-time student that means they will spend up to 45 hours per week on coursework. Additional program information is available on the University's Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs webpages.
