The Master of Education in Higher Education

The Master of Education in Higher Education is a 36 hour program that can be taken after completing a bachelor’s, master’s, or other advanced degree.  It is the appropriate degree for someone who wishes to work in the higher education field in a student affairs or administration capacity—either working directly with students or in a service-related or administrative department.

The Master of Education degree in Higher Education at HBU provides the skills needed for careers in administration and student services at a junior college, college, or university.  The MEd in Higher Education emphasizes a multidisciplinary perspective as a basis for developing effective administrators and policy makers. While students are exposed to the theories and practical issues that higher education administrators face in today’s colleges and universities, HBU students also gain an understanding of the multifaceted organizational structure of the modern university from a Christian Worldview perspective.
