Graduate Programs in Higher Education
The Warner School’s programs in higher education instill in students a passion to take the initiative and skills to inspire and carry out change in America’s colleges, universities, and related educational enterprises. As advocates for thoughtful leadership, graduates understand how to motivate others, make decisions, manage people and processes, and enable individuals to reach their highest potential. They also become thoughtful leaders and researchers with a comprehensive understanding of the institutional and cultural world of higher education. Throughout the program, students learn to use intellectual skills to approach the challenges of academic life with creativity and a deep appreciation of the fundamental purposes and ideals of higher education.

Warner graduates bring leadership skills—from the ability to set standards and goals, to an understanding of how to motivate others—to the day-to-day challenge of educational administration in higher education. Graduates of the program become deans, professors, researchers, college admission officers, facilities managers, financial aid officers, library administrators, and staff in a variety of administrative and student service offices.

All programs offer a rigorous core and flexible options to build programs of study to suit the individual student.

Master’s Program
The 36-credit MS program in administration, with concentrations available in higher education administration and higher education student affairs, is designed for those seeking an introduction to the field and the academic credentials for beginning and/or advancing their career in higher education administration or student affairs and student services administration. In addition to gaining a comprehensive understanding of the institutional and cultural world of higher education, students gain skills, such as management, planning and evaluation, and decision-making that enhance their leadership in a higher education setting. The concentration in higher education builds from a core centered on leadership and management, critical issues influencing higher education, and an understanding of how universities work. The concentration in higher education student affairs builds from a core centered on the administration of student affairs/services, critical issues facing higher education, and theories underlying college students development. Students can select coursework to suit their academic and career goals in consultation with their advisor.

- MS - Higher Education Administration (HE1) https://www.warner.rochester.edu/programs/program/HE1
- MS - Higher Education Student Affairs (HE4) https://www.warner.rochester.edu/programs/program/HE4

Higher Education
Have you been one of those undergrads who soaks up everything your college has to offer? Have you loved being a part of residential life? Alumni affairs? Admissions recruiting?
If you think you can make a difference on a college campus, the Warner School’s higher education master’s program can get you where you want to go. You’ll work with nationally prominent scholars, as well as higher education professionals, who have extensive backgrounds in college administration. You’ll gain skills as a thoughtful leader who is able to manage people and programs and help individuals reach their highest potential.
Get there by choosing one of two concentrations: a general higher education administration concentration, with flexibility to select coursework and internships to suit your goals; or a student affairs administration concentration, with an emphasis on college student development and issues in student services.
