Health Administration and Policy (Certificate)

Open the door to a management career in healthcare with an Undergraduate Certificate in Health Administration and Policy (HAP) from Creighton University College of Professional Studies. The 24-credit program will help you be a healthcare leader who can make an impact on your community.

HAP certificate courses are tailored to fit your busy life and are offered during the day, in the evening—or both.
