Health Care Management, B.A.


Return to: Majors, Minors and Other Academic Programs

 

The Health Care Management Major promotes an understanding of America’s complex and evolving health care system and increases the competencies of students pursuing careers as managers and leaders in that field. Students will analyze perspectives, methods, and values associated with the delivery, management and finance of health services. They will evaluate health data, payments systems, management practices, ethical principles, public policies, promotional strategies and system designs to discover ways to meet the demand for effective, affordable, efficient and responsible health care.

The major promotes organizational insight and managerial ability for those who desire leadership positions in health-related enterprises. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of both health care professionals with technical/clinical degrees as well as those of traditional undergraduate students. The curriculum in total is also geared toward enhancing the students oral and written presentation skills as well as overall problem solving skills.
