Health Policy, MS, PhD
Health policy dominates the national political conversation as serious healthcare issues impact a growing number of Americans. The graduate Health Policy program from USciences will prepare you to affect systemic change through the analysis and development of smart, evidence-based, and comprehensive health care policies.
Through a combination of coursework, research, and hands-on practice, you’ll examine the primary factors driving health care policy — access, quality, cost, and innovation — and how they apply to a broad range of stakeholders, including hospitals, health systems, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, and more.
Choose from a master of science or PhD in Health Policy, both offered with a flexible part-time and evening class schedule. Our alumni forge rewarding and influential careers in government, private, and academic settings.
