The minor in Health Policy and Administration (HPA) is designed to provide students with a background in the policy issues and administrative challenges related to quality, cost, and access to health care. 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.
The Health Policy Minor consists of 18 credits. A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor. In addition, at least six credits of the minor must be unique from the prescribed courses required by a student's major(s).
