Welcome to the Health Studies Program at ULM

The Health Studies program is an exciting four-year curriculum for preparing students for entry-level management jobs in non-clinical areas of healthcare or entry into graduate programs.

brochure graphicThis program begins with two years of guided liberal arts courses including humanities, mathematics and sciences. Health Studies students study a variety of health study courses the final two years.

The Health Studies Online Program offers the Healthcare Marketing/Management option in an accelerated format, available through the eULM program.  Both on-campus and online curricula are very similar; however, all Health Studies courses in the online program are offered in an 8-week accelerated system.  The online accelerated method provides limited disruption to a student’s life while maintaining efficient, high quality education.

The Health Studies program also offers personal attention, multidisciplinary learning, practicum, close ties to a major teaching hospital, and cutting-edge education relevant to healthcare. You will find a supportive and friendly faculty in the Health Studies department who are eager to help you succeed in your studies and healthcare career.

The Health Studies faculty encourage you to visit us and the Health Studies department. Feel free to make an appointment to learn more about the requirements for progressing to your senior year as a Health Studies student.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!
