Master of Education in Higher Education

Graduate program offered by the College of Education

UNT’s Higher Education program is one of the most established in the Southwest. We have graduated more than 1,000 doctoral and master’s alumni; many holding leadership positions in universities and colleges around the country as well as overseas.

The master’s degree in higher education prepares students for entry-level and mid-management positions in higher education administration in areas such as student life, student housing, career centers, multicultural centers, student unions, advancement offices, alumni offices, academic advising centers, international student offices, financial aid offices, dean of student’s offices, institutional research offices, and business affairs offices. The student affairs track meets the requirements of the Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS) for graduate programs in student affairs.

The Master of Education in Higher Education is offered in three formats:

  • The Standard Master’s Degree in Higher Education allows the student to specialize in one of three tracks: student affairs, community college leadership, or general administration.
  • The Online option allows students to complete their degree fully online.
  • The Master’s Cohort Program in college student personnel focuses on student affairs and includes immediate consideration for a graduate assistant position in student affairs or a related area.
