Welcome to the Health Studies Program at ULM

Our innovative Bachelor of Science in Health Studies (BSHS) at ULM covers a broad range of healthcare topics and helps students develop a variety of business management skills necessary to succeed in today’s workplace. Health Studies graduates can pursue non-clinical positions such as managerial jobs that involve coordinating, supervising, and training others or advanced education in business or health professional school.

The Health Studies Online Program offers the Healthcare Marketing/Management option in an accelerated format, available through the ULM Online program.  Both on-campus and online curricula are very similar; however, all Health Studies courses in the online program are offered in an 8-week accelerated system.  The online accelerated method provides limited disruption to a student’s life while maintaining efficient, high quality education.

The Health Studies program also offers personal attention, multidisciplinary learning, practicum, close ties to a major teaching hospital, and cutting-edge education relevant to healthcare. You will find a supportive and friendly faculty in the Health Studies department who are eager to help you succeed in your studies and healthcare career.

The Health Studies faculty encourage you to visit us and the Health Studies department. Feel free to make an appointment to learn more about the requirements for progressing to your senior year as a Health Studies student.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!
