The impact of Information and computer technology on the healthcare industry continues to grow. So does the demand for professionals whose expertise spans these fields. The Master of Science in Health Informatics at Northeastern University prepares you to successfully address the combined clinical, technical, and business needs of today’s health-related organizations.

You’ll have the unique opportunity to:

  • Choose the degree program that meets your professional goals—a traditional master’s, a master’s for those with non-technical or non-clinical backgrounds, or a career-advancing graduate certificate.
  • Build and differentiate your resumé, while earning valuable, hands-on experience through our customized co-op program.
  • Connect with our extensive global alumni network at leading healthcare and IT firms, such as Partners Healthcare, Boston Children’s Hospital, Athena Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and EMC.
  • Study part- or full-time on our Boston campus or anywhere in the world with our 100% online format.

Move into this high-growth field, from a range of backgrounds.

Our Master of Science in Health Informatics ALIGN program prepares you for success by providing a customized curriculum that links your undergraduate specialization to your graduate studies. A previous background in health informatics is not required.
