Health Services Degrees

A degree in health services prepares graduates to compete in jobs relating to the management and administration of healthcare systems.

For those who obtain the health services degree, an exciting field with multiple career options awaits. Graduates work in medical offices, hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, laboratories, and urgent care centers. Due to the interdisciplinary approach, this degree opens up the health care field to the graduate, and he/she can then choose the job type and specialty that interests them. The graduate might work as a patient intake coordinator, nursing aid, home health aid, dental assistant, medical assistant, or personal and home care aid. For those interested in healthcare management, the degree will allow entrance into the medical billing, medical office management, and medical coding careers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that most workers in the healthcare services field can expect a salary of about $18/hour.

An associate’s degree program features courses in administration, healthcare finance, healthcare records, human resources, and billing. Bachelor’s programs impart a greater degree of understanding of the healthcare system, and include coursework in administration, management, economics, accounting, marketing, management, and finance. Prerequisites vary on the program and degree type, however most programs will not admit unless a student has a high school diploma and sits for an entrance/placement exam.
