Department of Pharmacy Administration and Administrative Health Services

The Department of Pharmacy Administration and Administrative Health Sciences offers two baccalaureate or undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Health Administration and the B.S in Health Information Management. Each degree program has a Program Director, and courses specific to each program are offered through the Department under the following designations: HSHA (Health Administration) and HSHI (Health Information Management). Student majors within the Health Sciences are required to complete three to six HSCR (Health Sciences Core) courses, which are also offered through the Department.

The Health Administration Program provides market ready graduates with the competencies and skills to be effective administrators and managers in health delivery systems. Graduates are prepared to function effectively in response to trends, issues, and challenges affecting both health care systems and the health and welfare of the population.

The Health Information Management Program provides graduates with the technical and administrative skills to manage health information systems consistent with professional standards (medical, administrative, ethical, and legal) in health care delivery systems. Graduates also possess the knowledge and skills needed to plan and develop health information systems which meet standards of accrediting and regulating agencies.

Courses offered through the Department, curricular summaries for the various degrees, and the sequences in which program- specific courses and their primary prerequisite and co-requisite courses should be taken are indicated below.

Students should refer to program admission policies, comprehensive examination information, and other important information regarding the various B.S. degrees offered through this department within the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences introductory section of this document.

The Department of Pharmacy Administration and Administrative Health Sciences also offers Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Health Care Administration.
