Healthcare Policy


Welcome to the Healthcare Policy Major!

The Healthcare Policy Major is a cross-disciplinary program designed for students seeking a career in the healthcare policy sector. Students will complete courses taught by political science, biology, and psychology faculty. This program will train students in both the science and politics of healthcare. Students may choose to focus on local, national or international healthcare policy issues, and will participate in either a travel study that involves a world healthcare issue or an internship in the healthcare field, ensuring an education in both theory and practice.

Students may combine the major with minors offered in our department including Pre-Law and International Relations. This academic training will prepare students well for work in the pharmaceutical industry, governmental agencies, advocacy organizations, or graduate work.

The Healthcare Policy major is a unique opportunity for undergraduates in what is the fastest growing employment field in the nation. I invite you to review our requirements, and contact me to discuss your future.
