List of courses to meet the degree requirements in the masters program in Health Informatics.
The curriculum below is effective for all Masters students beginning study in Fall Semester 2007. The curriculum was designed to improve the quality of your educational experience by providing additional background skills and knowledge that are fundamental to the ability to study informatics, and by providing foundational courses that provide a core set of informatics skills and knowledge. The curriculum allows flexibility in course selection. Prefoundational courses may count as support courses with your advisor's approval.
If your first semester in the Master's program was prior to Fall 2007, you may choose to meet the requirements of the new matrix or continue with the previous curriculum. If you wish to use the new curriculum, you must inform Academic Affairs. Even if you choose to continue under the old curriculum, you are strongly advised to speak to your advisors about taking some of the newly offered prefoundational and foundational courses on the new curriculum.
