Healthcare Administration

Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration

Launch a career in healthcare management by developing the specialized skills and knowledge to handle the business side of the medical field - something not always available in traditional management programs. You will learn about the planning, organizing, staffing, and controlling of activities and resources in various types of healthcare institutions and agencies.

Unlike clinicians, you will not deal directly with patients on a daily basis. However, you will serve patients by helping to shape policy and make needed changes to improve the healthcare system.

  • Critical Reasoning
