The University of North Florida was ranked as one of the nation’s 25 Best Bachelor’s in Healthcare Administration Degree Programs for 2019 by Bachelor’s Degree Center.

“We have been graduating exceptional Health Administration students for many years and these students are in great demand locally and throughout the country. I’m thrilled that the faculty, staff and students are being recognized nationally for the incredible work that they do every day,” said Dr. Curt Lox, dean of the Brooks College of Health at UNF.

The ranking was created using the Association of University Programs in Healthcare Administration database. After reviewing hundreds of programs from across the country, the top 25 accredited healthcare administration bachelor’s degree programs were then ranked based on reputation, cost, graduate employment and graduation rate.

“UNF’s Bachelor of Health Administration Program is dedicated to providing a high-quality educational experience for our students to become the future health care leaders,” said Dr. Mei Zhao, chair of the Department of Health Administration. “We’re proud that now we are one of the top programs in the entire country.”
