Higher Education Administration MA
The Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration Degree program at Andrews University is designed to prepare students who are scholar-practitioners or serving in leadership and administrative capacities in national and international colleges and universities. As Andrews is a Christian institution, the focus of this program is grounded in a commitment to Christian values and high professional standards.
This program is able to be taken online, a format of delivery that provides some flexibility in scheduling and access to course materials to working students. Students can typically expect to earn their degree in a two or three year period, with four years being the maximum allowable time. It is the goal of this program to help candidates develop in their self-reflection, interpersonal communication, and leadership and organizational development areas. Students that graduate from this program may be able to pursue positions in administrative and executive positions in enrollment, admissions, financial, athletics, and residence halls services.
In order to successfully complete this program, students must earn a minimum of 36 hours of graduate level credit. Of that total, 15 hours come from coursework in the program core, four from research work, and an additional 17 from the concentration, which includes elective courses in education administration and leadership. Students are sometimes able to substitute elective courses for some classes, and those wishing to do so should work with an academic advisor. In addition to the general credit hour requirements of this program, students must develop and submit for review a portfolio. This portfolio should document the work and cumulative knowledge completed and acquired through the program and is to be assessed and approved by a faculty committee.
