Health Services and Health & Wellbeing

Pursue a Career Path of Health, Wellness, and Service

Want to make a real difference in the wellbeing of others? We can help. At the College of Continuing and Professional Studies (CCAPS), we offer two distinct educational paths to help you achieve your service-oriented goals in health and wellness.

Whether you choose to pursue an education in health services management or in health and wellbeing sciences, each program provides the foundational insights and skills you need to make a positive impact for your organization, your career, and your future.

Health Services Management

For current health service professionals or those who want to break into the industry, CCAPS offers three distinct educational options—BAS, certificates, or a minor—to gain the skills needed to pursue leadership roles in health services management. Learn what it takes to make a difference for the healthcare services and organizations people count on daily.

Health Services Management, Bachelor of Applied Science

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Health Services Management covers the gamut of administrative issues facing health-oriented organizations today. From macroeconomics to personal and community health, you’ll learn what it takes to lead organizations and communities as you better manage, plan, communicate, and coordinate medical and health services. Working with a program advisor, you have the option to customize your degree to your career goals with electives and options for health information science and leadership.
