Health care is one of largest and fastest-growing industry sectors. The need for skilled managers with health care management education is expected to rise. Use your professional expertise and knowledge to pursue a career in health care management in any of the following areas:

  • Health care office staff

  • Hospital operations
  • Health care human resources
  • Health care strategy
  • Health service management
  • Facilities management
  • Medical information management
  • Clinical research management
  • Clinic administrator

While many entry-level positions in health care only require a Bachelor’s degree, the Master of Arts in Health Care Administration is typically required to advance to many senior management positions. Among the many health care careers available to graduates are:
  • HMO administrator
  • Contract negotiator
  • Administrative services director
  • Hospital administrator
  • Clinical department manager
  • Consultant health care administrator
  • Health care program director
Successful completion of the Bachelor of Arts in Health Care Administration or Master of Arts in Health Care Administration by itself does not lead to licensure or certification in any state, regardless of concentration or specialization. Students seeking licensure or certification in a particular profession are strongly encouraged to carefully research the requirements prior to enrollment. Requirements may vary by state. Further, a criminal record may prevent an applicant from obtaining licensure, certification, or employment in this field of study.
