MEd: 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.
