Health Services



Building on the student's previous education and experience, the Health Services Program provides the skills and knowledge required for professional management-oriented positions in a variety of health care settings, including:

  • Administrators in clinical settings such as physicians' offices, hospitals, and nursing homes
  • Health educators
  • Community health workers

In addition, graduates are prepared to pursue graduate degrees in health sciences, public health, and related fields.

Employment of health educators and community health workers is projected to grow 21 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will be driven by efforts to improve health outcomes and to reduce healthcare costs by teaching people about healthy habits and behaviors and utilization of available health care services.

During the same period, employment of health services managers is projected to grow 23 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services.
