Take the Lead

Whether working in student affairs, academic affairs or college/university operations, the Higher Education Administration (HEA) program provides current and emerging professionals with the expertise they need to become leaders in the field.

Our diverse HEA curriculum aligns with ACPA and NASPA professional competencies. Each course combines theory and practice, so students can immediately start applying the concepts they are learning to enhance their performance in their job or internship.

Flexible Scheduling: Online or on-campus*

The program can be taken completely online or students can choose to attend on-campus. They can also choose to attend full-time or part-time, depending on their needs. With proper planning, full-time students can earn their master’s degree in as few as 16 months. 

Two Program Options; Multiple Opportunities

*For Fall 2021, most courses will be held online. For additional information, contact the program.
