About Health Services Administration
The mission of the Health Services department is to prepare students to become leaders and managers in health care
organizations through an understanding of the professional, social, technical, regulative, economic, and political
forces that influence the health care industry.
The Health Services Administration degree gives students a strong foundation in the organization, financing, and
delivery of health care services. To achieve this we offer a benchmarked curriculum that supports and matches the
needs of the health care industry in our region while collaborating with the profession and community thru engaged
service and research.
Our broad based approach to healthcare administration is revealed in the interdisciplinary nature of the program
that combines business administration and health sciences in one degree. With concentrations in long term care,
clinical practice management, community health, and sports and fitness management the program reflects the dynamic
nature of healthcare and the career opportunities available within the sector.
Health Service Administration courses cover areas ranging from health care systems and human resource management
to quality improvement and financial planning. An nternship is available and gives students an opportunity to
apply the skills and knowledge gained in the classroom to the field of practice.
