Students looking to complete a Master of Science in Higher Education Administration can do so fully online starting in the Fall 2019 semester.

The degree prepares graduates to serve in a variety of roles at colleges, universities, and related institutions. The program runs in partnership with FIU’s Student Affairs division and integrates classwork with assistantships for a total learning experience. Students in the program are taught and advised by full-time professors and senior higher education professionals.

Studies show graduates with a master’s degree earn more. By 2020, the Department of Education estimates that almost two-thirds of job openings will require postsecondary education or training. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, postsecondary education administrator employment is projected to grow by 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

The program runs 12-months (36 credit hours) and includes a practicum course/experience. For more information on admission requirements, tuition and frequently asked questions, see the program page here.
