Developing Leaders, Practitioners and Educators in Health Science.
As the population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry expects to see an increase in the demand for medical and healthcare services. In addition, a number of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity, have become more prevalent in recent years, all of which is expected drive projected growth of 17% in the employment of medical and health services managers from 2014 to 2024*.
Programs offered in the College of Public Health and Administration at the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences focus on developing elite leaders, practitioners, and educators who can apply critical thinking skills to solve complex health care issues and be successful in this rapidly growing field. All programs are offered online, providing the flexibility to fit into busy schedules and enabling students to continue working while earning an advanced degree. Students also are able to participate in optional campus-based experiences, giving them access to faculty, facilities, and opportunities to network and learn alongside fellow students.
