Postsecondary Education

Did you enjoy your college experience--both in and out of the classroom?

Are you a people person who enjoys helping others solve problems and accomplish their goals?

If you answered yes to these questions, we encourage you to further explore this website. Here you will find information about a master's program designed to prepare you to do meaningful, important work with college students.

Research has shown that co-curriculum--everything that happens on campus outside of the classroom--has great potential for growth and development during the college years. Co-curricular activities are an important complement and partner to academic work in shaping the whole student. A master's degree in Postsecondary Education: Student Affairs will prepare you for this work.

Read on, then contact us with questions. We invite you to visit campus and meet our students and faculty. Student Affairs is stimulating and challenging work--and fun.
