MSHCA Accelerated Master's Programs

Done faster. Change sooner.

Students with the drive to develop as leaders and enter the job market more quickly can earn their undergraduate and MSHCA degrees together in five years instead of the typical six.

An accelerated program isn’t just a savings of time. It’s also a considerable savings in cost, and for undergrads coming from outside of Pittsburgh, it offers an expedited path to experience the benefits of two distinct educational and cultural environments, and brings you into contact with Pittsburgh’s renowned healthcare sector that much sooner.

The Heinz College MSHCA program has collaborative agreements in place with the following institutions:

Carnegie Mellon University
3 years CMU undergraduate (any major) / 1 year integrated / 1 year at Heinz College

Allegheny College
3 years at Allegheny / 2 years at Heinz College
