Health Administration for Transfer Students (Direct Admit to EJBSPPP)

This program is designed to accommodate the needs of transfer students, both traditional and nontraditional students.

Entry requirements for community college transfers include:
  • Successful completion of an associate degree program with a grade-point average of 2.5 or better.
  • Completion of 01:355:101 English Composition II (3) or equivalent with grades of C or better.
Community college students are encouraged to apply prior to completing their degree program, indicating their anticipated degree completion date from their community college.

The health administration major prepares students for entry-level positions leading to an administrative career path in the healthcare sector. Students learn to address administrative and managerial problems in health systems, hospitals, ambulatory care facilities, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare delivery settings. Students learn about the financial, quality, and patient satisfaction issues in healthcare today. They learn about the policy, laws, and regulations regarding institutional management and for example, human resources.  They also learn about the ethical context in which administrative decisions are made in the healthcare field. The major leads to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree awarded by the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.

Students seeking the health administration major must have completed at least 30 credits before applying to the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
