Academic Options

The Healthcare Management & Leadership BAS program is the second part of a 2+2 structure. Meaning, students must complete an Associate’s degree (or equivalent 90 credits) before being eligible for admission. We have provided a step-by-step process below so new students can better understand their route to a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management. Bellevue College offers numerous academic options designed to meet the needs of students whether looking to enter into the field through an associates degree, obtain advanced technical skills through advanced certificates, or complete a bachelors degree to become a Healthcare Administrator.

Bellevue College offers the Healthcare Management & Leadership (HCML) BAS degree for students who are interested in becoming healthcare managers and administrators. The HCML degree offers two concentrations, in General Healthcare Management and Radiation & Imaging Management. These degree completion options are designed to prepare professionals for entrance to mid-level management positions in the healthcare field. This degree completion is called a 2+2 model meaning you come in with a 2 year degree (from any regionally accredited institution) and complete your last 2 years at Bellevue College to earn your 4 year Bachelors degree!
