Healthcare Administration B.S.

Excel in All Facets of Healthcare Administration

Obtain a career in a multi-disciplinary field that’s packed with potential. With a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration from University of Houston-Clear Lake, you will receive a broad-based education that prepares you for a management role in a hospital, insurance provider, pharmaceutical company, physician practice or public health advocacy group. You will study under the tutelage of professors who are experts at applying theory to real-world experiences in accounting, management, business finance, information systems, healthcare planning and medical reimbursement.

If you’re a first-year student, you’ll begin your degree on the Clear Lake campus to ensure you lock down all your core classes and enjoy a more traditional college experience. And if you’re a transfer student, you will complete all your remaining classes for this degree at the UHCL classrooms located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center.

Many of UHCL’s alumni serve in prestigious institutions such as Memorial-Hermann Healthcare System, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital of Houston, Texas Children’s Hospital and many other outstanding medical institutions across the United States.
