Online M.Ed. – Higher Education

SPHE Online M.Ed. Program

The University of Florida Student Personnel in Higher Education part-time online program is job-embedded and best suited for professionals who are currently working in student affairs, or a related field, and are interested in advancing their careers.

Our students have a variety of backgrounds and experiences, coming  from community/state colleges, research universities, and liberal arts colleges across Florida and the country.

While the program is based in student affairs, the curriculum is designed to address the needs of a variety of student-centered positions across higher education to include academic advising, financial aid, and support services within the academic affairs.

Students enter the graduate program in the fall semester as members of a cohort group. They complete their degree in a cohort model over the course of two years, including both summers
