UW at Casper’s New BAS Concentration

University of Wyoming at Casper logo

The University of Wyoming at Casper (UWC) is pleased to announce a new concentration in the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) program. In the fall, UWC will be offering a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Health Services Administration (HSA). The HSA program is structured for 100% fully online courses. The BAS program prides itself on flexible coursework to meet students’ career goals.

The new concentration—approved by the UW Board of Trustees at its May 13th meeting—targets learners who are interested in careers such as health services administrators, patient service associates, community outreach coordinators, healthcare office managers, and various positions in community health agencies and the health care industry. The program will also benefit those who are interested in working side by side with health care workers. It provides an excellent option for those who want to advance in healthcare but who do not want to pursue additional clinical education.

“We are extremely excited to offer this new degree path that provides an excellent opportunity for nontraditional students to break into the healthcare field. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment in healthcare is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations. The BLS projects 15% growth in healthcare occupations between 2019 and 2029, or approximately 2.4 million new jobs, highest of any sector in the economy,” stated Dr. Josh Valk, the Director of the BAS program. Elliott M. Sogol, Director of postgraduate education at the UW School of Pharmacy added, “we are delighted to collaborate with the BAS program. Being able to work with the dedicated students of a BAS program who are eager to advance their education and career is an exciting opportunity for our faculty.”
