Requirements for the Healthcare Management Major

J. Seth Chatfield, Assistant Professor of Healthcare Management
Halpin-Harrison Hall, Room 244, (540) 665-5434, [email protected]

The BBA Healthcare Management major is a distinctive, interdisciplinary program with a business focus and a strong biological component. In addition to the BBA business core and electives, the curriculum requires courses in biological sciences and other disciplines. Unlike the General Business major, because of its interdisciplinary nature, a Healthcare Management major student’s program of study is almost completely pre-specified.
