What will I learn?

The MA in Education with a concentration in Student Affairs and Educational Justice (SAEJ) prepares emerging and current student affairs practitioners to successfully lead and transform higher educational environments to promote teaching and development in and outside of the classroom.

Student service professionals and the offices they run have the capacity to positively impact the educational experiences of college students, especially those from traditionally underrepresented groups. Through policy, practice, and research, student affairs practitioners foster environments that are inclusive, respect diversity, and promote learning and success.
