Bachelor of Science in Health Informatics
The University of New England is an innovative and established leader in the online learning community. All of our online courses offer a multi-dimensional distance learning experience using a student-centered approach, specifically designed to accommodate different learning styles and the schedules of working professionals. The Bachelor of Science in Health Informatics is a degree-completion program, allowing students to transfer in two years (60 credit hours) of previously earned course credit. UNE’s degree-completion programs are perfect for students wishing to advance their Associate’s degree or to complete a second Bachelor’s degree, or who have earned partial degree credits that they wish to apply to a Bachelor’s. Students will transfer 60-credits of pre-existing coursework from any regionally accredited institution to replace years one and two of the baccalaureate degree. Students will then complete their third and fourth years of the bachelor’s degree in our competency-based program. Our program consists of 120 competencies designed to comprehensively prepare students for a professional career in health informatics. Each competency will award one-half credit hour upon completion, culminating in the conferral of a 120-hour bachelor’s degree. Students must demonstrate mastery of each competency in order to earn their degree. Health informatics is a rapidly growing field facing a shortage of qualified professionals. Health care employers – providers and IT vendors alike – are scrambling to employ a workforce sufficient in volume and training to design, deploy, and manage health information technology. The field of Health Informatics is growing ten times faster than healthcare jobs overall, and is the ninth largest share of healthcare job postings.
