National University Announces Online Master of Science in Health and Life Science Analytics Program

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- National University, the second-largest private, nonprofit institution of higher education in California and the 12th-largest in the nation, has introduced a new, first-of-its-kind, online Master of Science in Health and Life Science Analytics degree program.

The program, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), will prepare health and life science analysts for the vast and growing amount of data accumulating in the healthcare industry. Students working toward their Master of Science in Health and Life Science Analytics degree will work with real-world data and examples and use leading statistical software. By the end of the program, graduates will have experience in analytical and predictive modeling, data acquisition, data mining, healthcare information management systems and epidemiology.

"Data is the backbone of the medical profession," said Tyler Smith, MS, PhD, associate professor at National University's School of Health and Human Sciences. "Graduates of the Master of Science in Health and Life Science Analytics degree program will learn how to integrate the increasing volumes of data, frame relevant questions, and leverage cutting edge analytic tools and software to shape data-driven enhancements in healthcare."

National University's School of Engineering, Technology and Media and School of Health and Human Services will share resources for the first six classes of the program. Students then branch out into their respective, specialized analytic degree programs.

The 13-course program totals 58.5 quarter units, is fully interactive and taught in National University's completely online and convenient one-course-per-month format.

The program will prepare students, in part, to:

  • Integrate components of data analytics to produce knowledge-based solutions for real-world challenges using public and private data sources. Evaluate data management methods and technologies used to improve how the healthcare industry uses data.
  • Create data files using advanced statistical and data programming techniques to solve practical problems.
  • Design an analytic strategy to frame a potential issue and solution relevant to the community and stakeholders.
  • Combine analytics and data in a health setting to produce useful, pertinent information to specific cases.
  • Synthesize data analytics and data in a health setting to produce actionable information.
