Healthcare management bridging theory and practice of health administration, social and behavioral sciences.
The service professions are among today’s fastest growing fields. In fact, employers in every field seek professionals who demonstrate the knowledge and skills for which the service professions are known. Whether they recruit for social work or law enforcement, government or education, employers want managers and staff with the interpersonal skills and understanding of human dynamics crucial to every organization’s success.
You can prepare for the profession and related fields through the Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Health and Human Services at St. John’s University. Offered by our College of Professional Studies, the program provides a solid foundation in the theory and practice of health administration, as well as the social and behavioral sciences. Students learn how these fields promote cultural awareness and sensitivity by developing social and health policies, utilizing local resources, and serving individuals, families, and communities.
Reflecting the University’s Vincentian and Catholic values, the program places emphasis on providing quality services for marginalized populations including the elderly, the poor and the mentally ill. Benefiting from St. John’s metropolitan commitment, the Health and Human Services majors have access to invaluable health services and human services internship opportunities at leading, social service organizations, New York-area hospitals and other types of providers.
