Program Statement

The Higher Education Master’s Program prepares those who aspire to leadership positions in student affairs and other key administrative areas within a college or university. The program provides practical experiences and theoretical foundations offered within a diverse setting which prepares students to become good citizens in an increasingly complex and pluralistic society.  It fosters mutual respect and teamwork   and helps build communities whose members are judged by the quality of their character and their contributions.

We offer two modes of degree pursuit – face-to-face and  online cohorts. For those who value in-person experiences and comprehensive internship opportunities, the face-to-face cohort is a wonderful way of building academic and personal connections. For interested applicants who are not able to come to campus but still want a rigorous curriculum, the online cohort offers a strong alternative.
