The Health Administration and Policy Program (HAPP) offers three tracks of study for majors; Health Administration, Health Policy, and Public Health. HAPP students come to UMBC from a diverse set of backgrounds, and this diversity provides for a rich university experience.
Many HAPP majors go directly into the workforce after graduation. Students have gone on to work in the non-clinical medical setting in hospitals and care facilities, government organizations, nonprofit organizations, and private healthcare related jobs. Frequently these positions are the result of the required HAPP internship. Many students also go on to pursue graduate degrees in health administration, health policy, and public health.
You can also refer to the UMBC Undergraduate Catalog for further information about the academic program and course descriptions for the Health Administration and Policy Major.
