Associate of Applied Science in Health Care Management, Health Studies Concentration

The Associate of Science in Health Care Management is earned in an accelerated online format with two concentrations in Health Studies or Professional Practice for potential graduates.  Students receiving the Associate of Science in Health Care Management with a concentration in Health Studies can transfer all required course work completed at BPCC within that concentration to partially fulfill degree requirements for specified options of the University of Louisiana at Monroe's Bachelor of Science in Health Studies (up to 57 credit hours from this concentration).

The Associate of Science in Health Care Management with a concentration in Professional Practice is designed for students who desire immediate entry-level managerial positions within the healthcare industry and the Health Studies Concentration for students who plan to pursue admission to a baccalaureate program.  All courses are offered in 4-week and 8-week formats and average class size is 35 students.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow 16 percent from 2008 to 2018, faster than the average for all occupations. The healthcare industry will continue to expand and diversify, requiring managers to help ensure smooth business operations. The health science field is the second largest demand sector as reported by Louisiana Workforce Commission. Moreover, the Commission reports that 75% of these jobs do not require a four year degree or higher but do require employees with some training beyond high school.
