The convenience of the MHS online program is perfect for those working full time, looking to advance in the healthcare field. Careers are impacted by a master’s degree in health science by preparing the students to lead and serve as both practitioners
and administrators. For students who prefer and can manage an in-person course load, the option to build a network of peers in the classroom can have an immeasurable impact on their career path. Regardless of the experience a student chooses, the
Bellarmine name and network come with the degree, and this alone opens doors in Louisville’s healthcare industry.
Successful applicants are students with an undergraduate degree in a healthcare related field or who have significant exposure to health issues through their undergraduate coursework with a minimum GPA of 3.0. There is no requirement for a graduate entrance
exam, but references, transcripts, a resume and goal statement are required. For more information on the application process, check our admission requirements page.
