Graduate Programs

Higher Education Fellowship

The Higher Education Fellowship links graduate study with a nine-month clinical residency in a postsecondary institution.

This program focuses on learning and development of college students, college access, equity and diversity, and organizational development. Students gain a broad understanding of current trends, leadership challenges, and opportunities to pursue social justice in higher education.

Fellows graduate with a Master of Education in Higher Education (M.Ed.) - preparing them to become administrative leaders in colleges or universities and work in a variety of roles supporting the advancement of higher education.
