Health Services Administration Program
The curriculum for this program will help you qualify for administrative/managerial positions in the ever-expanding healthcare sector.
The 180 quarter credit (120 semester credit) curriculum is designed to expose students to the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the healthcare industry by means of health administration courses related to policy, law, economics, management, and marketing, as well as interdisciplinary courses dealing with ethical, religious, psychosocial, political, legal, literary, and historical perspectives on healthcare practices.
The Health Services Administration Program curriculum is a four-year full-time course of study consisting of 180 quarter credits and includes one co-op experience. The co-op experience consists of two consecutive quarter terms during the first half or the second half of the junior year. Non–co-op full-time and part-time options also are available. Transfer students are eligible for the full-time curriculum with or without co-op depending on the number of approved transfer credits.
The curriculum is designed to give students a foundation in general management and economic principles and policies related to healthcare. As part of this goal, students are exposed to the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the healthcare industry by means of courses in healthcare related to policy, law, economics, management, marketing, and informatics. At the same time, the curriculum provides interdisciplinary courses dealing with religious, ethical, psychosocial, political, legal, literary, and historical perspectives regarding healthcare practices and populations in need of healthcare.
In addition, the curriculum can prepare students wishing to pursue graduate studies in health services administration, business administration, public health, law, and health communication. The program also provides a minor in health services administration for Drexel University bachelor's degree–seeking students. The health services administration minor consists of 25 quarter credits.
