“One of my favorite parts of the LSU Shreveport's Master of Health Administration program was the course structure – 10 courses, taken in any order, for 7 weeks at a time, up to 2 at a time - this allowed me to build my schedule around my personal peaks-and-valleys times and ensure I always had enough time for coursework and studying. I was immediately able to connect what I was learning to my daily work and apply some of the concepts from readings/lectures/discussions in my client implementation work."
