Program Details

Bay Path College's relevant program offerings and convenient scheduling make the school very appealing to working professionals who hope to increase their skill-set and improve marketability. In a recent survey of Bay Path graduates, nearly 80 percent said that their degree gave them the boost needed to gain a promotion or other career advancement. Bay Path’s Master’s of Science in Higher Education Administration (HEA) can do the same for persons interested in pursuing a career, or furthering their already existing career, in the field of higher education administration.

Bay Path’s Higher Education Administration degree prepares students for a career in a variety of higher education administrative roles. As education continues to change – in student demographics, available technology, and an increased need to demonstrate tangible benefits of an education – professionals with the insight, creativity, and skills to lead school’s in making necessary adaptations will be even more in need. The degree program gives students the skills needed to navigate these changes in a professional and efficient manner.

Through the program, students will take core courses in higher education administration to develop these basic skills and understanding. Core courses include Law and Ethics in Higher Education, Organization and Governance in Higher Education, and Leading Change in Higher Education. Students will also have the opportunity to choose a specific concentration to meet their particular professional hopes and needs. Available concentrations are Enrollment Management, Institutional Advancement, General Administration, and Online Teaching and Program Administration. Finally, the network of both classmates and faculty that students obtain through the program has proven to be extremely beneficial in career success.

All students must complete 36 credits, or 12 classes, to earn their degree; 24 credits (8 courses) will be comprised of general higher education core and 12 credits (4 courses) will be geared specifically towards the  concentration. All degree requirements can be completed online, and students can expect to complete the program in 20-24 months.

Persons interested in learning more about the degree are encouraged to join Bay Path for one of their many information webinars. More details about these webinars can be found on the program’s webpage.
