The online Master of Education in Higher Education is for students who are looking for an advanced understanding of the skills necessary to lead on a college or university campus and support the implementation of the institution’s mission and vision. The curriculum uses a Christ-centered, interdisciplinary foundation to train students to make a significant contribution in fields ranging from higher education administration, student personnel work, university development/advancement, and teaching on the college level. Students can choose from two concentration tracks: administration track or instructional track.
