Project Management & Health Services Administration Double Major

Pairing a project management (PM) major with a health service administration (HSAD) major is a smart investment if you are interested in working in healthcare leadership or administration. Project management skills are increasingly important to businesses, including the healthcare industry, because they help control costs, manage risk and improve project outcomes. The double major diversifies your skills and knowledge in two areas of study, with a goal of a higher level and higher salaried administrative/leadership position.

Project Management & Health Services Administration Double Major Benefits

  • Earn a double major in about the same amount of time it takes you to earn one degree! And, you only need to take an additional 6 credits to complete both programs.
  • Enjoy flexible learning formats, including PM classes offered online and face-to-face on the Moorhead campus and HSAD classes offered entirely online. Both programs also offer summer courses to accelerate graduation.
  • Strengthen your skillset with supplemental credentials, including three certificates:
  • Develop deeper foundational skills and knowledge to refine and advance processes to improve patient care, effectively manage projects, and strategically achieve the organization’s goals. Healthcare leaders are working hard to continuously improve patient outcomes and achieve operational excellence.
  • Expand your marketability with increased job opportunities that demonstrate your ability to navigate a variety of challenges in project management.
