Health Master's Degrees

Bring positive change to individuals and communities with a healthcare-focused master’s degree

Whether you’re interested in helping others live healthy lifestyles, taking a leadership role in preventing and responding to an emergency situation, providing healing and expertise when a health issue arises or even leading the rehabilitation process, you can find a master’s at Creighton University that will help you reach your goals.

All of our master’s degrees are rooted in the Jesuit values of academic excellence, social justice, service to others and cura personalis. This is especially reflected in our healthcare programs, where we approach healing holistically and strive to address the root causes and symptoms of injustice in healthcare.


“In our programs, we take a ‘whole person’ approach to health. There's much more to a person than just their biometric measures—we look at all the factors that would go into the health of an individual: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and so forth.”
– Tom Lenz, Pharm.D. | Professor and Program Direct, Graduate School
