Roosevelt’s health science administration program provides students with the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for a successful career in the administration and organization of health care and medical laboratory settings. The mission of this major is to meet the career readiness needs of traditional students as well as enhance career opportunities for working professionals engaged in health care service delivery or laboratory science fields.
The BA in Health Science Administration provides students with 24 semester hours of core content and nine semester hours of electives to allow students to pursue their own interests in administration, lab science management or technology. Students will also complete an internship or capstone course designed to focus on their career interests. Students will also be well prepared for graduate study in public health, healthcare administration or health policy.
Health Science Administration majors in the College of Arts and Sciences can participate in the Health Science Administration, BA/MPA Public Administration Accelerated Program leading to a BA in Health Science Administration and a Master of Public Administration degree. The program allows students to take three graduate-level courses as part of their undergraduate degrees. Once students are admitted to the MPA, the courses will apply toward completion of the MPA degree.
Health science administration classes provide students with opportunities to expand their existing knowledge of health care and science and to acquire a broad perspective of societal issues and economic challenges facing our health care system. We encourage students to augment their degree with a minor in psychology, data science, biology, chemistry, Hispanic studies, African American studies, women’s and gender studies, organizational leadership, general business for non-business majors, or human resource management.
