Health Care Administration (Executive MPA) at UT Tyler
Curriculum and Degree Requirements
In order to graduate from the EHCA MPA Program, a student must complete all courses with a GPA of no less than 3.0 on the 4.0 scale with no more than one C and no F's.
Each student is required to take a capstone course in their last semester. At the end of this course, every student will submit in writing and give an oral defense of an approved case to a panel of faculty members. This written case and oral defense serves as the University's required comprehensive examination.
Because of the integrated structure of the curriculum and the nature of cohorted education, no courses or credit may be transferred into UT Tyler for use toward the degree requirements. Regardless of previous experience or academic work, all EHCA MPA students must take all required courses in the required sequence and at the required time.
