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.
Northwestern University's School of Education and Social Policy is consistently ranked among the top graduate schools of education nationwide by U.S. News and World Report.
On June 19, 2015, MSHE students, faculty and staff participated in the 2015 Northwestern University university-wide commencement and School of Education and Social Policy convocation ceremony.
A hallmark of the MSHE program is the culminating master’s project that each student in the program completes. Open to the public, events showcasing the most recently completed projects were held on three separate evenings (May 21, May 28, and June 4) in Annenberg Hall on Northwestern's Evanston campus.
