The Higher Education Master's Degree Program is designed to provide students with the foundation and resources necessary to understand and analyze how universities and colleges work. Graduates of our program are prepared to take on roles in a wide range of higher education settings and assume many key roles in activities such as admissions, advising, student activities, administration, and policy analysis.
The Higher Ed program utilizes a cohort model that offers full-time and part-time options. Our full-time track is ideal for students who hold graduate assistantships on SMU’s campus, while our part-time track is designed for working professionals interested in advancing their careers.
We emphasize theory and practical experience to prepare you to improve higher education institutions. Our courses blend the skills necessary to become an active contributor and strong leader within the academy.
