Students majoring in health administration and policy must select a concentration in health services administration, health policy or public health. Course work on campus is supplemented with an internship placement in a cooperating agency or organization in the community. All students registering for the internship must participate in a professional liability insurance plan for which they will be billed separately. To the extent possible, the Internship should be related to the student’s track concentration and career interests, thereby providing an effective combination of academic and practical training. A grade of C; or better is required in all courses applied to the major.
The credit and course requirements for a HAPP program major are as follows:
Core: 28 Credits (taken by all tracks unless designated otherwise)
Students must choose 6 out of 9 elective credits from upper level courses (300 and above). Any HAPP upper level courses not used for track requirements may be taken as an elective. A list of additional approved electives is available on the Department’s website.
