Master of Arts in Higher Education
The Master of Arts in Higher Education builds on the strength of Elon as a national leader in active and engaged learning. Students are immersed in the study of higher education in a student-centered environment rooted in hands-on, experiential learning with a global perspective. Enrollment is full-time in this two-year, 36-hour program that incorporates study away, two internships, a paid apprenticeship, and a capstone project.
In a small cohort of twelve, students learn and practice the principles for effective education; explore the functions, issues, and leadership of higher education; and prepare for leadership roles in colleges and universities. Graduates will leave the program as visionary professionals prepared to advance student learning and improve institutions of higher education.
