MS in Health Care Communication Academic Experience

Advance Your Career with an Intensive Yet Flexible Program

Designed to give you flexibility in balancing your education with personal and professional demands, the MS in Health Care Communication from St. Thomas is offered in a combination of on-campus, online and hybrid (in-person and online) courses. Expect to be on campus for one Saturday every seven weeks during your seven-week long core courses.

Classes are taught by experienced St. Thomas full-time business faculty and outstanding practitioners in the Twin Cities health care and business communities. You’ll move through the program with the same cohort of peers, whom you’ll meet in a three-day residency in the fall to kick off your studies.

Three courses in the program are combined with the MS in Health Care Innovation cohort, providing the opportunity to connect with other students who share an interest in the health care field.

Throughout the program’s guided networking and year-long practicum, you’ll gain valuable insights from your instructors, peers and mentors. Their diversity of disciplines, perspectives and experiences will enhance your professional development for a fulfilling career in health care communication.
