Academic Options

The Healthcare Informatics (HCI) program offers different pathways for students interested in joining this growing field of healthcare professionals. Students new-to-college or those with an associate’s degree should plan to complete the Healthcare Informatics Bachelor of Applied Science degree, and students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree in another field should consider the Healthcare Informatics Certificate of Achievement. Both programs are fully online and offered asynchronously to accommodate life’s busy schedules.

Have an associate’s degree, some college credits, or just starting your college journey? The Healthcare Informatics Bachelor of Applied Science is ideal for students considering their first bachelor’s degree or those coming from industries outside of healthcare or IT who are interested in retraining.

While the Healthcare Informatics Program accepts a wide range of associate’s degrees from regionally accredited institutions, we recommend some associate’s degrees as particularly well-suited foundations for the Healthcare Informatics BAS degree.
