Program Requirements

The health care management major is a degree completion program that enables adult learners to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree. Most students who select this major have earned an associate degree from an accredited two-year college or have earned transferable credits from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. The courses in this program are offered on campus in the evening and some are offered online. Both on campus and online courses are in an accelerated seven-week format. The average time for students to complete this major is approximately two to three years. Students may receive college credit for prior life and work learning experience by completing the prior learning assessment course.

All Viterbo graduates need to complete at least 128 credits to obtain a BBA degree. The health care management major requires the following courses unless transferred in:
