The Program in Higher and Postsecondary Education prepares individuals for leadership and service in a variety of postsecondary settings.
The Master of Arts program focuses on entry- and midlevel positions in student activities, enrollment management, financial aid, housing and residence life, student life, career services, and similar opportunities in student affairs.
Doctoral programs help individuals develop competencies in such areas as urban college leadership, policy analysis, student affairs, institutional research, fiscal management, and international higher education. Students benefit from strong links with two- and four-year institutions in the metropolitan New York area as well as the frequent and close interaction among students, faculty, and NYU administrators.
Our highly individualized programs in Business and Workplace Education focus on developing competencies in instructional design, curriculum development, and program evaluation, preparing individuals for entry- and midlevel positions with roles as faculty in two- and four-year colleges or as learning and development specialists in business, industry, or the public sector.
