Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Affairs
Prepare for a professional career in student affairs and leadership in higher education.
The Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) combines a rigorous academic curriculum which includes practicum experiences in various areas of student life, arranged in collaboration with the USF Division of Student Life.
Consistent with the School of Education's commitment to serve working adults, the program follows a schedule of alternate weekend classes that convene nine times a semester. Classes are typically held Thursday evenings, Friday evenings and all day Saturday.
“The social justice education component is something that I value most about the HESA program. It adds meaning and purpose to the work I'm pursuing and allows me to see the bigger picture. Joining a program that would afford me the opportunity to merge theory and practice was essential to my decision to attend USF.” - Amiya Powell-Hodge, Higher Education & Student Affairs Alumna
