For all minors offered at Texas State, please visit the list of Undergraduate Minors in the catalog. 

Healthcare Administration

The Healthcare Administration minor is designed to complement the student’s major with the objective of providing an introductory curriculum, which can assist the student in gaining employment in healthcare and healthcare related career fields. This objective can be achieved by: building on general education core foundations; offering scheduling flexibility for non-traditional students; introducing students to health services management functions through the mastery of certain skills including communication, decision-making, and coordination, unique to healthcare administration; and preparing students for graduate study. 

Health Information Management

Health Information Management (HIM) is the profession dedicated to the effective management of patient information and healthcare data needed to deliver quality treatment and care to the public. The fundamentals of the HIM profession continue to evolve over time, becoming less paper-based and increasingly electronic. HIM plays a critical role in the successful implementation of electronic health records and ensures that providers, healthcare organizations, and patients have access to the right health information when and where it is needed while maintaining the highest standards of data integrity, confidentiality and security. The minor in Health Information Management is designed to enhance other degrees on which students are working.

Completion of the HIM minor does not meet eligibility requirements for the Registered Health Information Administrator certification examination offered by the American Health Information Management Association.

Health Informatics

Health Informatics integrates health sciences, information science, computing, and data analytics to assist healthcare professionals to organize, analyze, and apply health information to improve clinical decisions and patient outcomes.

The Minor in Health Informatics is designed to complement existing majors including the Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management, BS in Health Sciences, BS in Public Health, and other majors across the university.
