“The Healthcare Management major will be my path toward the administrativ side of healthcare. The courses included in the major, specifically, Introduction to the American Healthcare System, Human Resources Management, and Legal Issues in Healthcare, were all very informative. My favorite aspect of pursuing this major is how each course directly relates to current and past events in the healthcare system.”
