ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The health care field is one of the largest economic sectors in the American economy, and it’s growing at a rapid pace. With constant changes in health care technology, regulations and knowledge, those in the field need solid management skill-sets. As a result, Reinhardt University introduces a bachelor’s degree completion program in HealthCare Administration with classes to begin January 2013. This online program is designed to meet the needs of the non-traditional student.
“Reinhardt’s program in health care administration responds to those needs by preparing students who already have an associate degree or the equivalent college credit to move up within their current organization to administration positions,” said Phil Unger, program coordinator. “It also allows those working or moving into the health care field to earn a bachelor’s degree in health care.”
The 51- credit program also offers an attractive option for students from area technical schools who want to complete their Bachelor’s Degree in Health Care Administration. The University has articulation agreements with several area technical schools that allow students the advantage of transferring up to 72 credits into the program.
“Flexibility, convenience and quality degree programming underscore the basic needs of the adult learner. Students have clear advantages in the program,” said Unger. “They can complete the course work in 18 months, and they learn from instructors who have the academic and professional experience to teach subject matter in the health care field. Another positive aspect of the program is that even though the program is online, students will still have ample opportunities to communicate with faculty.”
Students enrolled in the program also receive an iPad and electronic textbooks to assure the seamless delivery of course content and other materials. For information about the program, visit www.reinhardt.edu or contact Ray Schumacher, admissions counselor, at 770-720-9191 or RES@reinhardt.edu
Reinhardt has two locations- a residential campus in Cherokee County in Waleska, Ga., just 45 minutes northwest of Atlanta, and center focused on adults in Alpharetta, Ga.
