Master of ArtsSocial Justice Higher Education Administration

The Master of Arts Social Justice Higher Education Administration (SJHE) develops culturally-competent student affairs professionals who serve as catalysts for institutional change. SJHE provides the professional knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to be successful in a wide range of student affairs settings.

The SJHE program is a critical theory-to-practice program that equips professionals to be successful in a wide range of settings in higher education, including, campus life, multicultural affairs, leadership development, and residence life. Rooted in NASPA & ACPA competencies and the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education’s (CAS) guidelines, SJHE is unique in that social justice and cultural competence are at the core of the curriculum and all theories and practices are examined through an intersectional lens. This design prepares our graduates to meet the needs of increasingly diverse student populations at various types of institutions.

The program has a counseling concentration for students who desire to engage in culturally-responsive counseling, support, advising, assessment, referral, and advocacy.
