The Higher Education Administration (HEA) program prepares individuals looking to enter or advance their careers at post-secondary institutions. Students will learn organizational theory and social and policy issues critically impacting student success. Coursework will focus on culture, diversity, and the history of higher education as well as the unique challenges and variations within higher education, including differences in schools by regions of the United States, urban/rural institutions, tribal colleges and universities (TCUs), historically Black colleges and universities (HBCs), and other iterations of higher education institutions.

The program has a master of science degree with multiple concentrations that allow you to tailor your experience to your career aspirations. Additionally, the program offers a graduate certificate that can be used with a Master of Art or Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies at UAB degree.
