This concentration is designed to prepare graduates for positions of leadership in higher education with the knowledge and capacity to understand and facilitate change in institutions of higher education. The program grounds the students both in theory and in the tools and methodology of research so that they can contribute to academic inquiry and apply theory to issues facing institutions of higher education. Depending on the choices of electives and master’s degree, the graduate may enter careers in higher education leadership or teaching. Those with an intended focus in teaching must meet the required number of hours in the discipline through electives and the master’s degree. With an emphasis on collaborative learning, the concentration incorporates collegiality among students, among faculty, and between faculty and students. Opportunity is available for learning through teaching and a higher education practicum as well as directed consultation and research.
