The M.S.Ed. program's concentration in K-12 is designed for people who are interested in an interdisciplinary exploration of important foundational and policy issues in education and basic introduction to educational leadership across multiple settings. This program in particular meets the needs of educators in non-public school settings such as museums, corporate divisions, nursery schools, etc.
The M.S.Ed. program's concentration in Higher Education is designed for people who are in the early stages of higher education careers and are seeking a better understanding of how the enterprise of higher education is structured, governed, financed and managed. Although there is no typical M.S.Ed. student, most fit into one of three groups:
recent college graduates
people with one to three years of experience working in higher education
those who are making a career change into higher education
