Supporting Courses

HPA Supporting Course List

The Supporting Course or Related Area requirement is available to help you:

  1. Explore various interests to help narrow down career choices;
  2. Integrate knowledge from a variety of sources and fields as it applies to HPA; and
  3. Focus on a specific type of knowledge that could lead to a targeted career path or that might supplement a targeted career path.

Focus areas might include but are not limited to: Public/Population Health, Acute/Primary Care, Long-Term Care, Policy and Planning, and Administration. Your academic adviser or faculty mentor can help when deciding what courses to choose in this area.

Courses Selected In Consultation With Your Adviser:

Students are encouraged to consider how a course might be useful to their current interests and goals. An important part of academic planning is working with an academic adviser not only to understand the role of this Supporting Course requirement, but also to make sure that course selections complement the academic requirements of a the Health Policy and Administration major.

Courses other than those listed below may be used to meet this 36-credit requirement, but course substitutions require department approval and must be consistent with the student’s plan of study.

Related university minors or certificates are a good way to provide a focus to your HPA studies. Many courses are cross-listed between the supporting course list and relevant minors and will automatically be placed in your degree audit. A list of suggested related minors is provided on our FAQ page.

Proficiency in another language can be helpful to anyone. The department will approve the substitution of up to 12 credits in a foreign language toward the 30-credit Related Area requirement
