Higher Education Administration – School of Education & Human Development

Higher Education Administration

Develop Strategy. Versatility. Confidence.

Three innovative tracks lead to the Master of Science in Education:
Enrollment Management
Student Life & Development
Institutional Research & Policy Analysis

Confront the Issues
  • Skilled professionals emerge from our M.S.Ed. program well-prepared for diverse roles in college and university administration and ready to tackle today’s challenges from a broad-based, highly informed perspective.
  • Working pros who already have master’s degrees can earn one of our certificates in Enrollment Management or Student Life & Development to extend skills and credentials.
Shape the Future

Because of our strong emphasis on research and theory, our graduates are highly prepared not only as practitioners but also as potential candidates for Ph.D. and other doctoral studies.

  • We also are known for stressing communication skills, especially strong writing, and students are regularly required to write case-study analyses based in research and theory.
  • Our track record is exemplified by our graduates: A great majority (89%) in 2017 acquired middle-management positions in higher education or advanced at their current institutions, and 11% pursued graduate studies.
  • The University of Miami was a pioneer in strategic enrollment management and started the nation’s first EM-centered program two decades ago.
  • Today, we’re the only higher education graduate program in which EM is at the base of every concentration – as well as the only program that focuses on predictive modeling.
  • More than 90% of our master’s students add value to their M.S.Ed. by concurrently earning a certificate outside their chosen track.
