Bachelor of Health Science

Washburn University's Allied Health Department offers an online Bachelor of Health Science (BHS). This four year program is designed to provide graduates with knowledge and skills in the area of management and leadership. Students without healthcare backgrounds may expand opportunities in healthcare or prepare for a graduate program through the completion of a Washburn BHS degree.

Students can choose from 3 majors:

1. Health Services Administration, BHS-HA

There is a need for qualified managers within the health care field.  Regulatory issues, policy, technology, and financial issues are constantly changing within healthcare. Students pursuing the baccalaureate degree in Health Services Administration take advanced coursework in healthcare management and related healthcare issues which increases their marketability for administrative positions at graduation.  Students can choose to complete the BHS-HA major as a stand-alone program, or in combination with one of the allied health associate degrees:

  • Bachelor of Health Science – Health Services Administration 
  • In combination with health-related associate degrees earned at Washburn or previously earned

2. Medical Imaging, BHS-MI

There is an increasing need for qualified medical imaging technologists.  The completion of a baccalaureate degree with advanced imaging credentials make graduates even more marketable for employment opportunities in the medical imaging field. The medical imaging option allows students to choose from three concentrations:

3. Medical Laboratory Science, BHS-CLS

The CLS program, through its partnership with the University of Nebraska Medical Center, is a well-established program that combines a strong curriculum with a clinical component that prepares individuals to sit for the ASCP national certification examinations as Clinical/Medical Laboratory Scientists. The CLS program has recently been reactivated to meet the growing demand for Certified Clinical/Medical Laboratory Scientists in Northeast Kansas and beyond.

The Health Services Administration program also offers students in other majors a specialization in health services through a minor.

Minor in Health Services Administration

A minor in Health Services Administration can be obtained by completing a set of five specific upper-division courses within the health services administration core.
