About the Health Administration Completion Program

The Bachelor of Science in health administration completion program builds on foundation courses in associate degree programs and even other four-year degree programs. Graduates will be prepared for managerial roles in the health care industry and admission to advanced degree programs such as the Master of Business Administration (MBA) or the Master of Health Administration (M.H.A.).

The Student Experience

Mounting complexities in the health care environment mandate that health care professionals possess appropriate education preparation to advance to administrative positions.

The health administration completion program builds on the knowledge gained in entry-level health professional programs and provides the advanced knowledge, values and critical judgment skills needed to assume leadership and management roles in health care settings.

All courses in the health administration completion program are delivered in a distance learning format using the Moodle Learning Management system (high-speed internet access is required).

Coastal Carolina University's core curriculum requirements will be waived for students enrolled in the program who have earned an Associate of Arts (A.A.), an Associate of Science (A.S.), a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) from a regionally accredited institution.
