STUDENT AFFAIRS ADMINISTRATION
Method: Online or On Campus | Credit Hours: 36 | Credential: Master of Science
The Student Affairs Administration program is a two-year, practitioner-oriented curriculum, philosophically based in college student development and university administration. Using a student-centered approach, the faculty prepare first-line student and university professionals that primarily work with students outside of the academic classroom.
The SAA graduate program is committed to the growth and development of students by combining academic preparation, mentorship, and field experience in student affairs. Since there is not an undergraduate degree in SAA, we have a very diverse student population with our students holding bachelor degrees in a variety of areas.
What Will I Learn In This Program
- SAA students will be able to demonstrate mastery and application of foundational knowledge,
theories, practice, and skills of the student affairs profession.
- SAA students will demonstrate the ethical professional behavior necessary for successful performance in the student affairs field.
Advising Graduate Certificate
Students admitted into the SAA Master’s program can also “add on” the advising certificate to their SAA master’s degree and work toward earning the certificate simultaneously with the MS degree in SAA. Students wanting both the master’s degree and the certificate at the same time will complete 39 hours in SAA graduate courses.
