Health Policy Studies is a topic-oriented interdisciplinary program with an applied orientation that draws on several scholarly disciplines, including ethics, law, sociology, economics, finance, information systems, and management.

HPS courses are realistic. I work in health care and I find what is being presented in class to be so true. Professors in the program know not only academics, but have experience that they use to teach the courses. The course materials are directly applicable and motivating to read.  (student Shirley Alcé)
