serve the unique needs of the student population of the Southern
Crescent area of Atlanta by providing these students with the
didactic and experiential components necessary for them to enter
management positions within the health care delivery system . It is
focused on adult students and as such provides the majority of

Clayton State University has been identified by, U.S. News and
World Report as the one of the most wired campuses in the
Southeast and as having the most diverse student population. The
majority of our students are minority females many of whom are heads
of households. Almost all students have full-time jobs and the
Program schedules courses to accommodate the needs of this special
population. The Program also serves to provide the Nursing and
Dental Hygiene students with the opportunity to study Health Care
Management and thus expand their career options.
