Program Statement

The College Student Affairs specialization in the M.Ed. in Educational Leadership degree offers a unique blend of coursework that prepares students for careers as student affairs educators. Students can earn the 45-credit degree in four or five academic terms as a full-time student (9 to 12 credit hours) or participate in the program through the part-time pathway. Students may begin the graduate program in the fall, spring, or summer terms.

Resting on a foundation of scholarship and best practices, the college student affairs program prepares leaders for the student affairs profession within higher education. We emphasize the centrality of the helping relationship as a means to create and nurture engaging learning environments that promote holistic college student development. Our program is characterized by the application of theory to practice in coursework, graduate assistantships, and a capstone field experience.
