Healthcare Management

The Bachelor of Applied Science degree (BAS) is a bachelor’s degree specifically designed to provide workplace skills. The BAS degree offers two concentrations, Healthcare Management and Software Applications. The BAS program will prepare students to work in management-level positions in science, and vocational and technical environments based on the students’ choice of concentration.

 

The program is designed to enhance student’s knowledge, analytical abilities, and critical thinking skills and prepare them for upward mobility in their field of study. The BAS will also provide a seamless transition for students seeking to move from research-focused programs in science, and skill-based programs, to a management-level program in these areas.
