The Associate of Science (AS) to Bachelors of Applied Science (BAS) is designed for students who are certain they will complete a BAS in Health Services Administration. The curriculum is intended to prepare students to enter the upper division courses in the HSA program. BAS Health Services Administration graduates work in the administrative areas of the health care field. Positions can be found in hospitals, clinics, insurance companies, pharmaceutical firms, and doctor’s offices. HSA professionals have little or no direct patient contact, but provide service "behind the scenes."
