The University of South Carolina’s College of Engineering and Computing is home to one of just a few accredited Master’s in Health Information Technology degrees in the country. The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the vulnerability and gaps in the U.S. healthcare industry and the need for skilled health I.T. professionals. The UofSC MHIT program, offered on-campus and online, boasts a 93 percent employment rate among graduates within one year of graduation and aims to fill these in demand positions.
The MHIT program is a unique partnership between the CEC’s Department of Integrated Information Technology and the Department of Health Services Policy and Management in the Arnold School of Public Health.
