1 HIGHER EDUCATION AND STUDENT AFFAIRS MASTER S DEGREE PROGRAM Department of Educational Leadership and Policies College of Education University of South Carolina Program Statement The Master s Degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) combines a rigorous program of full-time study with in depth practical experience suited to dedicated individuals seeking professional careers in the administration of college student development services and activities. The University of South Carolina s Division of Student Affairs and other offices accord meaningful assistantship positions in which HESA students are given substantial authority while assisting in the management of university services and activities for students. Students have completed assistantships which have provided opportunities to gain experience in various offices, including residence life, student activities, multicultural student services, orientation, parent s programs, student discipline, University 101, community service, leadership programs, and the Visitor s Center. Several assistantships are also available at other local colleges. The assistantship, coupled with practicum and internship experiences, ensure a strong experiential background from which to launch a professional career. Thoughtful reflection on the real life experiences provided by assistantship, practicum, and internship experiences lend a relevance and immediacy to rigorous classroom studies. Program faculty bring their significant scholarly achievements and their experiences as practicing administrators to the classroom. Experience in college administration and active programs of scholarship blend together to bring excitement and depth to classroom dialogue. Often, students become involved with faculty members' research projects and find themselves engaged in important inquiry that has a lasting effect on their futures and the future of the student development profession. Upon completing the Higher Education and Student Affairs program, graduates accept positions at colleges and universities across the country, and are welcomed into a network of knowledgeable and experienced alumni that stretches from coast to coast and over the 40 year history of the program. The USC alumni network continues to support the career and professional development of all its members.

5 THE SOUTH CAROLINA COMMISSION ON HIGHER EDUCATION PRESENTS A COMMENDATION FOR EXCELLENCE TO THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA FOR THE HIGH QUALITY OF ITS PROGRAM LEADING TO THE MASTER OF EDUCATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION AND STUDENT AFFAIRS Meeting the other current and potential HESA students during GARP helped me to make my decision to attend USC.
