The Bachelor of Science degree program in Health Care Administration offers successful graduates a sound theoretical and practical education together with opportunities for direct field experience to prepare them for entry level management positions and future professional career growth. Graduates typically will assume supervisory and middle management positions in hospitals, nursing homes, psychiatric facilities, group practices, managed care plans, ambulatory centers, home health agencies, and other types of clinical services. In support of JSU’s rich heritage, this program is sensitive to the needs of a diverse student body that will address the national, state, and local need for more underrepresented minorities in management and the professional health workforce. Experienced Healthcare Administration graduates can advance their educational career in the school’s MPH and DrPH programs. All school curricula are designated to serve full-time and part-time (working) students in evening classes.
