New master's focuses on the art of educational leadership
Thursday, October 27, 2005
SCSU introduced this fall a degree aimed at developing leaders for the state's colleges and universities: a master's in higher education administration.
The program is designed to develop the skills needed for leadership success in higher education: four-year, community and technical colleges and universities. It's attracting students on their way to careers as program directors, chairs, deans, vice-presidents and presidents.
The 36-credit program offers coursework in leadership, the law, research design and execution, community relations, finance, and personnel and supervision. For the convenience of those already employed in education or elsewhere, the SCSU classes are offered primarily on Friday evenings and Saturdays, as well as at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.
