Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA)

This online certificate is designed for full-time employees currently working in student affairs, without a student affairs degree, who are interested in learning more about the field, application of theory to practice, and the current issues and trends facing our profession. This twelve (12) credit hour program consists of four online courses and can be completed over the course of one or two summers. Each student who successfully completes the courses will receive verification from the faculty that confirms successful completion of the certificate program.

The certificate can be combined with the online Adult Education master's degree offered through Indiana University. Students interested in completing the adult education master's degree online can also complete the HESA Certificate as part of that program.

All courses will be taught online and will require students to have regular access to technology. Students will be encouraged to engage in online video and written communication.
