Health administration offers two options: health services administration and long-term health care administration. The health services administration option prepares you for entry-level management and staff positions in all sectors of the health care industry. You are prepared for positions in acute, subacute, and ambulatory care facilities, such as hospitals, clinics, home health agencies, managed care organizations, and other emerging health delivery systems.
Note: If you pursue a double major in health services administration (HSA) and long-term health care administration (LTC), you will be required to register for and complete a separate internship for each major, HLTH 481 for HSA and HLTH 482 for LTC. You only need to register and complete HLTH 480B for your practicum requirement.
At the completion of either course of study and after official application for degree conferral, you will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Health.

Generally, the policy on internships, practica, field experiences, and senior internship requires registration for the experience in the quarter(s) that the requirements for the course are actually fulfilled. The only exception to this requirement is an experience that takes place over winter break, in which case registration for the course may occur during either fall or winter quarter. Be sure to work closely with your adviser/program coordinator to ensure proper registration and fulfillment.
