Credits for Degree: 120 semester credits
Standard Mode of Instruction: Online
Standard time to completion: 36 months

Program Overview

Healthcare in the United States is a continuously evolving industry, with emerging societal trends constantly changing the landscape. This, paired with fragmented and opaque insurance systems, has created a massive demand for Healthcare Administrators who understand the nuances of the industry. This major prepares students with skills in being effective leaders and administrators in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare organizations. It is best suited for those with an allied health background, such as nursing, respiratory care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, dental hygiene, and medical laboratory technology. The BS in Healthcare Administration major will expand the opportunities at the undergraduate level for AU to recruit students from both Allied Health majors and from other related fields.
