Minor in Health Services Management

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in health services management.

The minor in health services management complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by enhancing the knowledge, skills, and competencies required by the changing health services environment. The minor covers a wide range of topics designed to help students deal with the challenges of management and leadership in this dynamic field.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in health services management requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in health services management, chosen from any HMGT courses and GERO 342. It is recommended that students take HMGT 300 as the first course in the minor (if they have not already applied the course toward other degree requirements).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
