New Program: MS in Higher Education Student Affairs Leadership
The Master of Science in Higher Education Student
Affairs Leadership is offered by our College of Education and Leadership and available
100% online. This program focuses on how to prepare leaders for working with people
of different ages, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, abilities,
socioeconomic status, language, and customs by providing the knowledge, skills and
understanding of human development, the emotional and psychological needs of
students, their financial needs, the impacts of budgetary decisions on working
with students, overseeing campus life activities, recruitment, advisement, student
life, and all other aspects of students’ academic development.
Students in the
program will learn how to better understand and appreciate the needs of diverse
populations as a result of their education. The program prepares individuals as
leaders to become aware of the different functions and services offered in an
academic institution that a student would encounter.
