The core curriculum of the Postsecondary Education Administration (PSE) program fosters
growth in research, human relations, multicultural inclusion, and leadership theory.
A supervised internship offers students an opportunity to test drive a functional
area in higher education from an administrative perspective. Faculty advisors will
work closely with each student to identify site placement to best serves his/her personal
and professional goals. Students will choose to complete a capstone research project
(CPR) or a case study analysis as the exit requirement for the program.
