The Higher Education program offers professional graduate degrees for careers in advanced leadership positions in colleges, universities, non-profit organizations, or educational associations. The program has specialized curricular tracks in student affairs administration, international higher education leadership, and leadership and administration.
Students gain professional experience through internships with a wide-variety of colleges, universities, agencies, and associations in the U.S. and abroad. A capstone experience engages students in real-life research projects that are commissioned by university and community leaders.
The program meets the requirements for graduate programs of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA), the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA), and the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE). The program meets standards established by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS).
