Thank you for your interest in the master’s degree program in Higher Education Administration at Georgia Southern University.  While completing 36 semester hours of classes and practicum experience, our students are exposed to a broad overview of the roles that academic affairs, student services, and business affairs have in the practice of higher education administration.
