Program Structure

Courses are eight-weeks long to meet the needs of working adults. Courses are offered during fall, spring, and summer terms in a sequenced integrated online format. The MHA program has fall and spring entry dates. Students may complete the MHA program full-time or part-time. Students will be expected to create a degree plan with their MHA faculty advisor.

Each of the MHA courses combines online learning and a minimum of two meetings on the Auraria campus. For our distance learners and those not able to make it to campus, they will be able to use the electronic classroom. The students can download the Bb Collaborate application to their computer or device for free. Additionally, students will need a webcam, a stable internet connection (sufficient to stream videos), and a telephone nearby.  Our virtual class meetings will be scheduled by the course instructor and announced during registration. Students will log on to the course in the Bb Collaborate application and join the Collaborate session. They will be given a phone number to call in to get the audio portion of the class meeting. The video will come over the Internet and the audio through their phone. This dual-channel approach allows for real-time video between the instructor and the learner.
