Program Description

The Health Administration and Policy Program (HAPP) is one of three undergraduate majors in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Health Administration and Policy.

HAPP offers three tracks of study for majors; Health Administration, Health Policy, and Public Health. HAPP students come to UMBC from a diverse set of backgrounds, and this diversity provides for a rich university experience.

Many HAPP majors go directly into the workforce after graduation. Students have gone on to work in the non-clinical medical setting in hospitals and care facilities, government organizations, non-profit organizations, and private healthcare related jobs. Frequently these positions are the result of the required HAPP internship. Many students also go on to pursue graduate degrees in health administration, health policy, and public health.

HAPP is located on the second floor of the UMBC Public Policy Building. We would be HAPPy to have you visit!
