About School of Education and Behavioral Sciences

School of Nursing & Health Professions


The healthcare field relies on administrative professionals to help improve the quality of patient care as well as control costs. Our program is interdisciplinary in nature and is designed to help students develop skills that can help them be more effective in managing care in a variety of settings.


The Health Administration program prepares students for entry-level administration positions and career development in managerial and executive level employment in a variety of health settings, both rural and urban. Educational opportunities are provided for students to gain experience and knowledge in life sciences, health systems organizations, personnel and program administration, fiscal management and leadership skills. Students participate in health program planning, fiscal management, and policy development for health care facilities.

The program is interdisciplinary in nature. It provides the student with the general educational background consistent with a liberal arts education, offers the student experiences in the basic field of Health Administration, and prepares the student for interdisciplinary professional practice. The program includes a practical experience component, fulfilled by the student’s participation in an internship that allows the student to spend one semester in an agency or institution that matches the student’s major career interest. Graduates are awarded a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Health Administration and are prepared for entry into graduate school, as well as entry into the workforce.
