Program description

Health care continues to be one of the largest areas of growth of hiring in the United States. This major offers experience and education in support of many opportunities in health care business management. It provides practical instruction for undergraduates leading to entry-level administrative and management positions in hospitals, clinics, health care systems, medical offices, long-term care administration, home health, consulting, managed care, and many other related fields. Students will gain a conceptual understanding of business and the health care industry, along with analytical and problem-solving skills, to apply that knowledge in a variety of settings. The major's core content includes the following health care areas: leadership and management; diversity, equity, and inclusion; quality management; health care economics and finance; legal and regulatory aspects; health informatics; human resources; medical ethics; and program evaluation. The major may be customized with electives in areas such as innovation, project management, long-term care administration, or health informatics, among others. An applied internship experience is required, along with a career planning course. The major will also interest individuals already employed in the industry who need additional skills for professional advancement. Finally, it can serve as excellent preparation for many graduate programs. The major builds upon the breadth, quality, and variety of courses in the CCAPS Health Services Management (HSM) and Applied Business (ABus) offerings as well as departmental courses through the School of Public Health, College of Liberal Arts, Institute of Health Informatics, and the Center for Spirituality and Healing, among others.
