Take the Lead

The Higher Education Administration (HEA) program provides the academic preparation needed to equip current and emerging professionals with the expertise they need to become leaders in the field. Students can enroll full time or part time, and take their courses on-campus, online or in combination. With proper planning, full-time students can earn their master’s degree in as few as 16 months.

The curriculum aligns ACPA and NASPA professional competencies, combining aspects of theory and practice within the changing landscape of American higher education.
