M.S.Ed. in Higher Education and Student Affairs

Coursework is designed to enhance your professional development and is completed through four fundamental elements:

  1. basic core
  2. counseling and counselor education
  3. foundations
  4. electives

Most full-time students take two academic years and one summer session to complete the degree requirements. To complete courses in the preferred sequence, students need to begin coursework in the fall semester.

All students are required to hold a graduate assistantship in higher education and student affairs.
