Program Delivery

hed_delivery1.jpgThe MA in Higher Education Program is a 36-credit program that could be pursued in the following formats depending on a student's time and commitments:

  • In the ACCELERATED PROGRAM, students earn degrees by taking core classes once-a-week over a continuous 20 month period, beginning each September at Geneva College. A one-week break follows each course and two longer breaks occur at the Christmas holidays and in the summer respectively. Students typically complete elective courses by enrolling in one of the Institute Programs or in other unique programs associated with Geneva's Higher Education Program. Most students in the Accelerated Program hold Graduate Assistantships at Geneva or at nearby colleges and universities.
  • The INSTITUTES PROGRAM allows students to pursue a master's degree without having to leave their current positions. Institutes are offered in the early summer and early winter each year.  Students can take either one or two courses per week at the two-week Summer Institute and the one-week Winter Institute. Readings, assignments, and ongoing conversations are undertaken during the semester(s) that follow each Institute. Needless to say, the Institutes Program is the ultimate in flexibility!  Students who desire to finish the MA in Higher Education in three years may take four courses each year by attending both weeks of the Summer Institute (or a combination of Summer and Winter Institutes). However, students who desire to take longer to complete the program may opt for two or three courses per year, utilizing any combination of the Summer and Winter Institutes. 
     
  • The SELF-DIRECTED STUDIES PROGRAM offers students the opportunity to design their pursuit of the MA in Higher Education in the most feasible way. That is, students interested in this format can simply choose courses whenever they are offered until they fulfill all of the program requirements, whether it takes 2-3 years or 4-5 years for them to do so!
