The Health Administration curriculum includes an integrated research project threaded throughout the program.

The research acts as a foundation for ground and challenge theory to a practical application, culminating in a final capstone major project. Practical skills for real-world situations are the key to a Hilbert College education in public administration, online or on-campus.

It is expected that Hilbert graduates will lead with a level of competency and integrity second to none.

Students take one course at a time and move with a cohort, developing colleagues and friends. Cohorts remain together throughout the 16-month program, changing a course of study every five weeks to complete 12 sessions.

The accelerated cohort model is convenient for individuals who are employed full-time.
