Healthcare Administration

Healthcare Administration

A healthcare administration education combines a passion for health care with expertise in business and management.

Program Details

Health care leaders are critical team members in every type of care setting. They ensure that care is delivered efficiently and effectively, while also meeting the goals of patients and their loved ones.

If you have a mind for business, our healthcare administration program will teach you how to put it to use for a variety of health care organizations. Most of the healthcare administration courses are offered in an accelerated online format, making completing your healthcare administration degree flexible and convenient.

You’ll also gain practical, hands-on experience during a required internship, where you’ll be coached and mentored by a current health care leader.
If you are currently licensed or otherwise credentialed as a health care clinician (e.g. LPN, RT, RCP, etc.) and you are looking to advance into health care leadership, please view the page for our Bachelor’s in Health Science degree.


Through learner-centered educational approaches, we develop students for success in healthcare administration practice, instill passion for the profession, and promote a commitment to life-long learning.


Our graduates transform healthcare through a commitment to compassionate service and innovation.
