How the MHSA Schedule Works
Individual course with diverse teaching methodologies driven by competency achievement and experimental application. The robust on-line learning platform is available to MHSA students 24/7 and delivers high quality presentations, forum discussions, teamwork activities and direct linkage to each faculty member. In-person or Virtual Synchronous sessions are hosted at the LECOM Bradenton, Florida or Erie, PA campuses at the beginning of the program for orientation, registration and introductions to the didactic coursework, and at the end of the program aligned with graduation. Student coursework for assignments and examinations are submitted electronically within each course on the LECOM Learning Management System, access to which is limited by a unique usernames and password.
There are two cohorts for enrollment; the January and June Cohorts. These cohorts have been designed for professionals who seek a MHSA degree while continuing to work full-time as well as students currently enrolled in other professional programs, such as LECOM’s COM, SOP and SDM programs.
The January Cohort begins in early January. Students study through distance education courses of six-week durations. A final 4-day In-person or Virtual Synchronous session allows for a final project presentation and career planning activities. The curriculum is completed in 18-months.
The June Cohort begins with in late May early June. Students study through distance education courses of eight-week durations. A final 4-day In-person or Virtual Synchronous session allows for a final project presentation and career planning activities. The curriculum is completed in 24- months.
