Master of Health Communication
Information flows between healthcare practitioners and patients, and between researchers, policy makers, and the public. That's why understanding how language and communication processes shape and influence our acceptance of health-related information is a critical part of healthcare. Chatham's accelerated 10-course Master of Health Communication is a hybrid program that blends on-site learning with online offerings for increased flexibility.
Students study topics including health literacy; media coverage of health issues; and health risk communications; and the interplay of ethics within these arenas.
Courses in our 30-credit Master of Health Communication degree program include:
- COM510: Health Communications
- COM625: Communication Campaigns
- BUS540: Leadership for Change in Healthcare Organizations
“As a leader in healthcare, my Chatham Masters in Communication equipped me with the most current skills necessary to manage information sharing in an ever-changing healthcare environment. Chatham provided me with an invaluable experience that has opened new doors in my healthcare career.”
