Masters of Science in Health Sciences with a Track in Physician Assistant (PA) Science

The MSHS Program will offer a Track in Physician Assistant Science for students enrolled in the PA Program at Cuyahoga Community college (Tri-C). The PA track includes 36 graduated credit hours in the MSHS program at CSU and 59 credit hours in the PA program at Tri-C. These students need to be admitted into the PA Program at Tri-C and the MSHS Program at CSU at the same time.

This requires that they have already earned a bachelor’s degree and are eligible for admission to both programs. Students take courses in both programs simultaneously. The program of study in the MSHS Program consists of thirty-six credits. The MSHS degree with the Track in PA Science, along with the credential earned at Tri-C by completing the PA Program, will meet the licensing requirements for practice in Ohio.

Physician assistants seeking a master’s degree may also apply to this program and earn the MSHS degree with a Track in Physician Assistant Science.
