Health Administration Program by qyd44618


									Health Administration Program

The Health Administration major provides students with a university education that
promotes personal and professional growth as well as concentrated awareness of health
systems and their effects on society. Flexibility in course selection encourages students to
develop a program of study that will strengthen their analytical skills, expose them to new
thought, and develop their awareness of leadership and responsibility as citizens and future
health administrators.
