BS in Health Care Administration 2+2
The health care administration program provides students with knowledge and skills to act as health-care administrators in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, long-term care and outpatient facilities, physician offices, and public health agencies. This interdisciplinary program introduces students to managerial concepts and related skills. The health-care core courses enhance students’ knowledge in a variety of related subjects, including current health issues, legislation affecting health care, and management theories and decision making, all of which are important in health care administration.
Students who enroll in the degree completion program must have an associate’s degree in a health related field. Students who select this program are often already gainfully employed in the health care field (nurses, respiratory therapists, etc.). They wish to further their education to better prepare themselves for administrative positions.
