Minor in Health Policy and Administration (HPAAL)
The minor in Health Policy and Administration (H PA) is designed to allow students to learn more about the health care system, health policy, and health administration. The minor is most appropriate for students interested in clinical and health-related fields (e.g., nursing, nutrition, biobehavioral health, or medicine), professional fields (e.g. business administration or law), or the social sciences (e.g., economics, sociology, political science, psychology), giving these students an understanding of the health care industry and the impact of business and government on that industry. Students must take 6 credits of prescribed courses including H P A 101(3), which introduces the organization of the health care system, and H P A 057 GHA(3), which considers the role of the health care consumer in the health care system. Students then focus their study on either health policy or health administration, choosing among courses at the 300 and 400 level. Students select 3-6 credits from H P A 301(3), H P A 310(3), and H P A 332(3) and 6-9 credits from 400-level H P A courses.
