- A rigorous yet practical course of study emphasizing leadership, social justice, and theory-to-practice.
- Core requirements explore and critically examine concepts, values, ethics, competencies, and theories that provide foundational perspectives on higher education and student affairs.
The Master of Education in Higher Education and Student Affairs (MED-HESA) at Saint Martin's brings our Benedictine values-based approach to student services/student affairs work on college and university campuses. We aim to challenge and support the next generation of scholar-practitioners in the field of higher education and student affairs.
All MED-HESA degree candidates are required to take 30 semester hours of Core Requirements courses. In addition to the Core Requirements, students must choose an elective and complete a capstone course. Elective courses are selected to complete required credit hours. These courses must be acceptable for graduate credit and typically are taken from courses offered in the College of Education and Counseling, but may draw from other graduate programs at Saint Martin’s University at the approval of the student’s advisor.
