M.A. Management &
in Higher Education
Dual Degree Program
David Widdifield, D.M., M.A. in Management Program Director
Dale Meinecke, Ph.D., M.Ed. in Higher Education Acting Program Director
The Master of Arts in Management and the Master of Education in Higher Education Dual Degree Program is a 60-hour program. The dual degree program will be most relevant to students who want strong understanding, skills and competencies in developing leaders, organizational management, and in leading educational organizations within higher education effectively from an administrative perspective.
Studies in Higher Education provide individuals who are interested in a variety of areas in higher education with the opportunity to explore, with breadth and depth, the various facets of post-secondary institutions. The purpose of this dual degree is to prepare students for successful and rewarding careers in a global business environment in leadership and management vocations. Faculty and staff members work closely with students to equip them with the knowledge and skills for future employment and leadership opportunities. The dual degree will give students the best of both worlds as the concepts are intertwined and integrated from a Christian perspective.
Individuals who are interested in higher education administration, student personnel work, university advancement, or teaching on the college level will enhance their immediate value to an organization with heightened leadership and analytical skill abilities developed within the course of study. Individuals sensing God’s calling to be in higher education in any of these areas, or those who are in business organizations and who feel called to serve in higher education administration, will be greatly benefitted by the dual degree.
In order to pursue a Dual Master's Degree program, the applicant must apply to, meet the existing admission requirements for, and be accepted into each of the master's degrees which comprise the dual degree program.
