Undergraduate Programs

The Health Policy and Administration program in Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development is designed to help you understand all aspects of health care.

With courses in the liberal arts, business administration, and health sciences, the undergraduate program in Health Policy and Administration can help you learn how to successfully manage the challenges in the health care industry, one of the fastest-growing fields in the United States.

Flexibility

The HPA major is now offered on five Penn State Campuses—four that provide residential instruction and one that allows you to complete the degree entirely online.

The major gives students a lot of flexibility to select courses that fit their personal and professional goals. However, the flexibility means you bear a major responsibility--together with your faculty mentor and academic adviser--for designing a curriculum (a set of courses) that fits your goals.
