Program History

The Health Services Administration (HSA) program has been in existence at JMU since 1991. It began as a concentration within the Department of Health Sciences, and in 2004, was approved to offer a B.S. in Health Services Administration, a change which reflected the importance of the visibility and appeal of a stand-alone major. Since 1998, the program has been a Full Certified program by the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA), the highest recognition for undergraduate programs in health administration. To date, there have been approximately 900 graduates of the program who have been successful in obtaining professional employment in the health services industry and gaining acceptance to graduate schools.
