Justification: (attach separate document if necessary) The proposed Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Development creates a degree from a current concentration in Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS). Currently, Higher Education is the largest concentration in MAIS. The degree will prepare students for positions in higher education administration including student affairs, non-profit higher education associations, and government organizations. The degree has become the entry level benchmark to many higher education positions as the field of student development has become more professionalized. A specialized degree has also become the benchmark for obtaining supervisory and director positions in student affairs and higher education administration. Today s higher education professionals need to understand both the needs of incoming traditional age students, as well as adult students returning for a degree and special populations such as veterans. The wide range of student backgrounds in the current complex context requires a holistic approach to college student development. This master s degree will prepare future higher education leaders who understand higher education in the digital age, student development, multicultural and diverse populations, program development, professionalism, and learning assessment. This multidisciplinary program draws not only on the expertise of the Higher Education Program faculty, but also on the liberal arts and social science faculty of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. A specific degree in Student Development and Higher Education will allow for a more nuanced and relevant preparation for professional work in general and the capstone assignment in particular. Too, one of the purposes of the MAIS degree is as an incubator for new degrees. With a current enrollment of 32 students and an average enrollment over the past 6 years of 31, and as the largest concentration in MAIS, this new degree is a natural evolution. We suspect a specific degree name will lead to increased enrollment. No additional resources are needed. Students are advised by the Director of the Higher Education program. Students must meet with the advisor their first semester and then again after 18credits to discuss the Professional Performance Review and plans for their capstone. Also, students progress is reviewed at semesterly progress meetings. Concerns regarding progress are communicated with students. Note that we propose to change the prefix to HESD from CTCH. Note too, the only change for most courses would be the prefix. Program Title: (Required) Title must identify subject matter. Do not include name of college/school/dept. Concentration(s): Admissions Standards / Application Requirements: (Required only if different from those listed in the University Catalog) Existing Higher Education in the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies New/Modified Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Development Applicants to all graduate programs at George Mason University must meet the admission standards and application requirements for graduate study as specified in the Admissions section in this catalog.
