Program Details

Eastern Washington University’s Interdisciplinary Studies Health Leadership program is designed to provide students with the foundational skills and knowledge of the operations of healthcare organizations and aims to also give students a variety of perspectives on communications in the field and beyond. The program is designed especially to accommodate working professionals through its completely online offerings and is enhanced by various online learning applications.

The program provides room for experiential learning through the Prior Learning Assessment. Students cultivate a portfolio through a special portfolio development course, which documents their higher-level learning through career experiences. Upon completion, the portfolio is evaluated by a faculty member who awards elective credits based on the project.

Prior to enrollment, prospective students should design a degree program to meet their specific goals and objectives.

Because the program is interdisciplinary, students bear the responsibility for designing a program that meets their professional and intellectual needs. There are a variety of minors, certificates, and pre-professional programs to choose from.
