The Higher Education Emphasis

The higher education emphasis prepares students to pursue a career in colleges and universities or the many organizations that study, support, or address higher education-related issues. The ELPS department works collaboratively with campus administrative offices. Students may also seek graduate assistant opportunities in areas such as student affairs and housing.

Students take courses in higher education administration, law, and history and become informed consumers of research. Graduates find employment in many areas of higher education, including but not limited to:

  • Student affairs
  • Housing
  • Financial aid
  • Institutional research and technology
