Bachelor of Science in Policy, Planning, and Development

 

The Bachelor of Science in Policy, Planning, and Development is an interdisciplinary major that prepares students for a professional career by engaging them in the analysis of society’s political, social, and economic issues in such areas as environment, health care, and urban life.


Health Policy and Management Track

 

The health care system is undergoing profound changes with innovations in technology, regulatory pressures from the federal government, continuing barriers to access, and the globalization of care. This enormous industry represents a growing component of our economy and remains an essential part of our quality of life.

Students entering this track can emphasize the administration and management of health care organizations or policy formulation and implementation of health issues. Courses will prepare students to work in government agencies, health care organizations, policy advocacy organizations, or for a wide range of medical and health-related graduate programs.
