The program in higher education administration offers three post baccalaureate degrees: the M.A., Ed.D. (as well as the Ed.D. Executive Cohort), and Ph.D. Course offerings are designed primarily to train, sensitize, and broaden the information base of administrators and personnel already affiliated with various types of postsecondary institutions, including community colleges. Preparation for employment with institutions of higher learning in Alabama and the Southeast is a program goal as well. The curriculum, centered on small seminar classes, is intended to produce scholars and scholar practitioners who can think critically about problems, discover ways to solve them, and put those solutions into practice. Community college topics are integrated into several course and students may investigate community college topics in their research and dissertations.
