Health Systems Administration and Policy master's program offered by Indiana University South Bend is housed in the Department of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Indiana University South Bend. 


As such, the program promotes a course of study that exposes students to the study of public policies and affairs that integrates practical professional management skills with the analysis of real world issues. Health Systems Administration and Policy is offered by Indiana University South Bend.

Understanding the political, economic, and social context in which public sector enterprises operate will be given attention as will the commitment to skill building and applications to policy making. We believe a course of study that integrates both theory and practice in public affairs will provide the foundations for equipping managers to excel at their jobs and to become leaders in their workplaces and communities.
