Master of Science in Higher Education Administration and Policy Program
The Higher Education Administration and Policy Program prepares reflective and dynamic leaders for careers in higher education. Alumni work in colleges and universities, governmental agencies, and consulting firms concerned with higher education. Graduates have careers in fields including student affairs, admissions and enrollment management, financial aid, government and community relations, policy analysis, alumni relations, institutional and policy research, athletics administration and change management.
Students come from a wide variety of educational and professional backgrounds. This diversity adds depth and a mixture of perspectives to classroom discussions. Classes are offered in the evening and can be pursued either part-time or full-time.
