The health and social service industry is one of the largest employment sectors in Canada. In this Bachelor of Arts program in Health Administration, you’ll learn to help manage issues associated with rising demands for health care, costlier and more diverse treatments, and the ways in which infectious disease outbreaks (such as H1N1 or 2019-nCoV) disrupt the economy.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn from award-winning educators and researchers who integrate the latest advancements and knowledge into your courses. In this program, you’ll also have experiential learning opportunities in a practicum placement allowing you to pursue your specific interests in health administration.

You can focus your Health Administration studies in one of two areas: Human Resource Management, or Community and Social Service Management. These specializations provide you the opportunity to earn a graduate certificate from Conestoga College and your Bachelor of Arts in Health Administration in only four years. 

If you are interested in the factors influencing health care, then being a Health Administration student is the perfect fit for you.

We also offer a BA in Community Health and a BASc in Community Health.

Professor Kate Rossiter, Chair of the Community Health Department, welcomes all inquiries. You can contact her for more information at
