B.S. Allied Healthcare Management

Designed for medical professionals with technical or patient-care credentials, the Allied Healthcare Management degree positions you to transition to management opportunities in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, long-term care facilities and physician practices.

With this transfer-friendly major, you’ll save time and tuition when you transfer up to 24 patient-care technical credits.

Not only will you be grounded in the fundamentals, but our relevant curriculum also incorporates current industry insights and the latest trends in healthcare management, including changes in healthcare delivery systems, the future of healthcare financing, the impact of healthcare reform, and legislative healthcare policy proposals.
