With healthcare as the fastest-growing U.S. employment sector and demand at an all-time high for qualified health services managers, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is expanding its popular Bachelor of Science in Healthcare and Human Services Management degree to Rochester.
Employees from hospital and clinics and social service agencies who have completed some college or a two year degree credential who want to advance in the field or continue on to graduate studies are welcome to apply.
Professionals who have completed programs such as medical laboratory technician, surgery technician, human services, or health information management are examples of areas that fit well with the degree.
Students choose between two specializations:
Healthcare Management: This specialization provides an academic and career pathway for those working in the healthcare industry. The specialization enhances students’ understanding of management and supervision, healthcare delivery systems, information management, and workplace training strategies.
Human Services: The specialization is designed for individuals who want to gain skills in case management and an understanding of how social service networks respond to the needs of underserved populations.
The program is designed for working adults who need flexible options to complete their bachelor’s degree. All courses are offered in the evening and are 8 weeks in length with 2 out of 8 class sessions offered online.
Classes will start Fall 2017.
Applications for admission in to the new Bachelor of Science in Healthcare and Human Services Management program are being accepted now. For more information or to find out when information sessions are scheduled, contact Laurie Roy at 866-437-2788. Visit the program website for program information.
