  • Description:
  • Master of Arts in Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education
    The HALE Master's program prepares individuals for entry-level leadership positions in postsecondary education, public agencies, and business settings. The program provides a broad understanding of educational systems from social, historical, cross-national, and normative perspectives. It also develops understanding of central issues in postsecondary teaching and learning, and a theoretical understanding of administration and leadership connected to practice. There are opportunities to develop and use skills needed in practice through internships and field experiences. We expect that graduates will be prepared to work in and to cultivate educational environments that are receptive to diversity.

    Doctorate in Higher, Adult,and Lifelong Education
    The doctoral program is a combination of experiences designed by the student in conjunction with a faculty guidance committee. It includes a set of core, elective, research and methods, and cognate courses, as well as several intellectual hallmarks that include comprehensive exams and dissertation pursuing a research question of interest to the student.

    "My program in HALE has challenged my beliefs about roles in higher education, and changed the way I view leadership. The faculty have provided one of the most satisfying learning environments I have ever experienced!"
    --Andrew Flagel, Dean of Admissions, George Mason University and HALE Ph.D. student
